Upstate NY under hot weather alert for 'prolonged heat wave'

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

It's extremely hot out there.

Millions of Americans are spending the weekend before the Fourth of July sweltering in an oppressive heat wave that forecasters think will stretch at least until the end of the week before any relief arrives.

Temperatures will be a touch cooler in the Midwest, but heat index levels will still hover around 100 degrees from Texas to MI.

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

Temperatures, dewpoints, and heat index values will be very similar on Monday. By this afternoon, dew points inch up into the low 60s which makes the humidity a bit more of a factor.

The NWS added scattered storms are likely for Sunday evening and may be severe with gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Come Sunday, the heat index will inch up to the upper-90s, according to the National Weather Service's forecast for the region. Records on Sunday are 97° in Allentown and 101° in Reading, and again records will be threatened, more so in the Lehigh Valley than in Berks County.

The hottest June 30 on record was in 1954 which saw a high of 99 degrees that day, Mott said. "Last summer, the longest stretch of 90-degree days was mostly in the four- to five-day range for areas north of the Mason-Dixon Line".

Most of July's first week will be hotter than normal.

Drink plenty of water and avoid caffeine to stay hydrated.

Heat illness are possible for those active outdoors or those susceptible to heat illnesses, such as children or the elderly.

National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson said temperatures are expected to reach 90 degrees today, with warmer weather inland away from the sea breeze.

Heat index values are expected to be up to 107 due to temperatures in the upper 90s and dewpoints in the low 70s.

In some areas it could feel as hot as 95-100 degrees Monday and Tuesday, prompting a hazardous weather outlook in Maine's interior, according to the weather service.
