A heat advisory has been issued for all of Upstate New York as scorching heat heads in from the Midwest.
The worst of it appears to be today and tomorrow, though, with a heat advisory in effect now through 8 p.m. Monday. And while the high temp for Sunday is forecast to be about 98 degrees, it is expected to feel more like 105 degrees out there in the afternoon. The heat will be more than enough to cause problems, but the humidity will be high as well. The Excessive Heat Warning is in effect from noon today through late Monday evening. The high will be in the upper 90s, with a heat index around 103 - which could be a record-breaker. Heat index values as high as 99.
Drink about a quart of water every hour while working or playing in the heat. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles, in which authorities saidauto interiors can reach lethal temperatures within minutes.
Temperatures spike for the 4th of July as a strengthening area of high pressure in the upper-levels of the atmosphere builds in overhead. Furthermore, if the heat persists past the holiday, this heat wave could approach some of the notably long heat waves on record in locations such as New York City and Albany, New York.
There is a slight chance for some storms on Sunday and expect some "cooler" temperatures.
Given it's the first heat wave of the summer, it is important to remember and practice hot weather safety measures.
Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, vomiting, cold/pale/clammy skin, heavy sweating, fast and weak pulse, and weakness or fainting.
Current temperatures sit around the 90 across the region before factoring in the heat. If you plan on spending time outdoors, such as at the beach, pool or ballpark, should keep in mind to use sunscreen. "When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening".
Heat stroke is a medical emergency and warrants calling 911, according to officials.
