Hot and humid enough for you? There’s more on the way.
According to the National Weather Service, the muggy conditions will increase today as temperatures rise into the mid 80s. A heat advisory has been issued for Orleans County and the Finger Lakes region from noon to 8 p.m. A strong southwest wind will keep the areas closest to Lake Erie a little cooler and there may be a few pop-up showers.
Forecasters say Tuesday will be even hotter and stickier. Clouds will keep the heat down on Wednesday as a cold front approaches, though highs in 80s are expected again. After it rains Wednesday night, the outlook for Thursday is for comfortable conditions, with sunshine and highs in the 70s.
In the meantime, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday urged New Yorkers across the state to take precautions during the extreme heat. He urged people to visit pools, beaches and cooling stations.
"Be sure to check on neighbors who may be at risk," he added, "and limit strenuous activity to ensure that you and your family remain safe and healthy during this stretch of extreme heat."
