NWS Issues Excessive Heat Warning for Wednesday and Thursday

On Wednesday and Thursday, New Yorkers should plan to stay indoors in places that are cool, avoid strenuous activity, and stay hydrated by drinking a lot of water and other beverages.
Today’s weather is expected to be warm and mild, with the temperatures that do not exceed 86 degrees.
Later today, isolated thunderstorms may fall before temperatures begin to soar back up above 90 degrees for a three-day stretch, which marks another heatwave that will peak on Thursday with high temperatures that approach 100 degrees.
On Friday, New Yorkers will breathe a sigh a relief when the air cools off a few degrees, however, the air will remain warm as Shabbos comes in.
On Shabbos day, the city might see a thunderstorm that will clear the air for a less hot and humid Sunday, which is expected to bring refreshingly cooler air.
