Possibly Severe Storms to Move Into Southwest Central Iowa WHO-HD

Very humid air will make temperatures feel as high as 110 to 115 degrees during the daytime.

The record-high temperature for July 1 in New York City is 100 degrees. We're looking at a high of 95.

On Sunday, the sun will rise at 6:01:43 a.m. and set at 9:07:18 p.m.

Unfortunately, Friday and Saturday are expected to be almost as hot, with highs in the mid to upper 90s.

The heat index reflects not just the actual temperature, but the effect humidity has on conditions, even in the shade.

Friday, the high was 96 degrees at 2:50 p.m. - one degree shy of the 1954 record of 97 degrees for the hottest June 29.

Temperatures in the mid-90s are forecast for Saturday as the city is bracing for a Heat Advisory - and the projected beginning of a heat wave that could go through Thursday. Hot temperatures will last into next week, and possibly right through Independence Day. And it will feel more like 101 degrees both days. Take plenty of breaks from outdoor activities in a cool spot, preferably indoors with air conditioning, and be sure to drink plenty of water and stay well hydrated. Some residents are urged to limit their time outdoors including young children, the elderly and those with respiratory problems.

Once the Minnesota winter of 2017-18 finally ended (remember the blizzard of April 14?), how many people said they'd never complain about the heat again? Paul metro area is about to get hot - and wet. After Tuesday, the heat will moderate a little bit as highs lower closer to 90 degrees.

Crank up the AC or head to the beach this weekend because it's going to be hot. However, it will still be hot and humid, with highs in the middle to upper 80s along the coast, and lower to middle 90s elsewhere.

A massive heat wave roasting the central and eastern US this weekend with temperatures that felt like the triple digits is expected to linger at least into the July 4th holiday, weather officials said on Sunday.

Have a great rest of your weekend!
