NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City was officially in a heat wave Monday as temperatures soared into the 90s for the third straight day in a row.
By noon, Central Park hit 93 degrees. The forecast calls for temperatures to climb to around 95 degrees on Monday, but the humidity will make it feel like more in the upper 90s.
“I really hate it,” Bronx resident Ramon Perez said. “Because I don’t like the summer.”
There have already been nine days this summer where temperatures hit at least 90 degrees, but there were not three of those 90-degree days in a row, so it couldn’t officially be called a heat wave, CBS2’s Elise Finch reported.
The last official heat wave in New York City was in July of 2013.
For those looking to beat the heat, the sun has been unrelenting, especially at the beach.
“Ridiculously hot,” one beach goer in Ocean Township told 1010 WINS’ Rebecca Granet.
“I hate heat,” said another.Comments
