Record heat may burn Northeast's 1st day of summer
The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a HEAT ADVISORY in effect for Wednesday across the area from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. with expected heat index values from 100 to 105 degrees. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. You are advised to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Get more information from the NEWS10 weather office here.
Summer is coming in like a fire-breathing dragon to the northeastern U.S.
The National Weather Service forecast potentially record-breaking hot weather just as the summer officially starts at 7:09 p.m. on Wednesday.
Health officials are advising people to drive less and avoid strenuous
outdoor activity as a sweltering summer solstice brings high heat and
humidity to upstate New York.
Temperatures are already in the 80s late Wednesday morning in some areas and are expected to approach or top 100 degrees Wednesday and Thursday in cities all over the northeast including Philadelphia, New York and Boston.
Officials advise residents to drink water and stay out of the sun and in the air-conditioning.
State officials have issued an air quality health alert for the southern and western half of the state because high heat combined with vehicle exhaust leads to the formation of lung-irritating ozone. Officials urge people to drive less to reduce the amount of air pollution.
In western New York, the city of Buffalo opened several spray parks about 10 days early to help residents cool off as hot, muggy weather settled in on Tuesday.
The elementary and middle schools in Highland in the Hudson Valley are dismissing students early because of the heat.
Relief from the high mercury should come this weekend.
