TODAY: The heat is on!! A Heat Advisory is still in effect for most of the Tri-State until 7PM. Mostly to partly sunny skies along with an ample amount of southerly wind flow will help our highs peak in the low to mid 90s with a heat indices reaching the triple digits. It’s a good idea to limit the amount of time you spend outdoors and stay hydrated. Winds won’t be moving much, which will make it feel quite stagnant. We are tracking some relief this afternoon. There is a chance of some isolated storms, but none of those are expected to turn severe.

TONIGHT: Conditions will stay primarily dry and warm through the evening and overnight. Temperatures will only cool into low to mid 70s.

REST OF THE WEEK: Low-to-mid 90s will be with us for the remainder of the week, but the humidity isn't going to be as extreme as the last few days. There is a slight chance of some isolated storms tomorrow afternoon, but those aren't expected to be widespread or enough to ruin our Friday night plans. Relief from the high heat and humidity won’t return until next week.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
