The stars will be out in full force into early next week in the Big Apple as MLB All-Star Week takes center stage.

On Tuesday night, the best of the National League take on the best of the American League in the 84th Annual All-Star Game. Air time is also 8 p.m. EDT.

After a couple of cooler-than-average days across New York City, temperatures will be on the uptick into early next week as a large bubble of high pressure builds overtop the mid-Atlantic.

Heading into the day on Tuesday, the bubble of high pressure will hold strong with high temperatures Tuesday afternoon reaching the lower 90s once again.

Visitors heading to Citi Field for batting practice before the All-Star Game will need to stay hydrated and wear lightweight, light colored clothing as AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures will once again approach 105 degrees.

By first pitch in the 84th All-Star Game Tuesday evening, the temperature will have fallen to around 88 degrees, but the humidity will remain high throughout the game.

The good news for visitors and ball players is that the threat of any Tuesday is very minimal. With the strong bubble of high pressure in place, any thunderstorms that try to pop up in the hot weather will more than likely be squashed.
