Heat Wave on Horizon for New York City

29 Junio 2018

As this heat heads toward the Northeast, several consecutive days above 90 degrees are likely. Hot temperatures will last into next week, and possibly right through the Fourth of July. With enough sunshine, temperatures could approach 100 degrees, especially on Sunday. THURSDAY: As of now, we are expecting this to be Day 7 of our prolonged heat wave.

Bright, sun-filled skies and a steady southwest wind will result in quickly warming temperatures once the sun is up.

Top 10, A+, 100%... however you want to grade yesterday, it goes without saying, it would be tough to beat.

The actual temperature will be in the low-to-mid 90s Friday and mid-to-upper 90s Saturday. Also, a layer of mid-level dry air, despite a very moist low level of the troposphere will result in the potential of an isolated wet microburst or two.

Highs on Thursday are expected to be near 100 degrees, with it feeling as hot as 112 degrees because of the high humidity. The standing record high for June 30 in Sarnia is 33.9 C set in 1971. Any slow-moving thunderstorms could bring flash flooding in this region. Current forecasts call for a high of 96, but it's likely to be even warmer. Once again, flash flooding is a concern with slow-moving storms.

Unfortunately, not everyone in these northern climates has the luxury of central air.

The Spring fire in Costilla County, Colorado, has burned 4,000 acres - burning multiple homes in the county.

Watch for areas of fog later tonight-tomorrow morning.

The next chance for showers and storms will be Saturday afternoon and evening.

I look for temperatures to easily get into the mid-90s Saturday, and that should be for most of Lower Michigan. There will be relief at the beaches each day, where highs will be mostly in the 80s. The agency warns that residents should keep an eye out for symptoms of heat-related illness, which include swelling, rashes, cramps, fainting, and heat stroke.

So far this year, Connecticut has had six days of 90-degree weather, the hottest of which were 94 degrees.
