High Heat, Oppressive Humidity And Potential Thunderstorms

The National Weather Service said Tuesday some spots in the state will see their fifth day of temperatures around or above 90 degrees.

"All those days are really humid, essentially what it would feel like to be a hundred or higher", Wistar said.

"The heat index will approach 100 degrees again during the afternoon hours on Tuesday through Thursday". While many towns will remain dry, where storms do pop up, rain could be heavy and accompanied by frequent lightning. Most of these will have dissipated by the time the cold front traverses southern New England by Tuesday evening, but an isolated thunderstorm can not be ruled out north and west of the city during the evening commute.

Tomorrow (Independence Day): We've perhaps kicked heat and humidity back a notch, which is a good thing relatively speaking.

Agency leader Greg Olsen said Friday that hot weather can be particularly risky for older adults, especially those who live alone, are low-income or have chronic health conditions.

Southern Syria Fighting Creates New Refugee, Border Crises; Israel Sends Aid
Syria is pushing south in an offensive against rebels in the southern Daraa Province, which borders Israel and Jordan . It is estimated that as many as 115 civilians have been killed in regime bombardments on the province since 19 June.

It looks like we are going to stay in this pattern of seeing scattered afternoon and early evening shower and thunderstorms for Friday through the weekend as well. Some of the storms will be slow-movers bringing lots of rain to some towns while others nearby get nothing at all.

The temperature will hit the low 70s at the coast and mid-80s inland on the Fourth of July. There is a slight chance for a strong storm with damaging winds too. Today, however, that will likely not be the case as we mark the third day in a row over 90 degrees, making it officially a heat wave. The Excessive Heat Warning will continue for Chicago itself, where the cumulative-effects of the oppressive heat will last longer and be greater.

July has finally arrived, and boy is it coming in hot! The director the New York State Office for the Aging is warning senior citizens and their caregivers about high temperatures.

SUNDAY: Sunny, comfy. High: Low-mid 80s.
