In wake of a weekend with low humidity and below-average temperatures, heat and humidity will push into New York City at midweek.
"The hottest weather of the season so far will spread from the Ohio Valley to the mid-Atlantic states Tuesday into Wednesday," Expert Senior Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.
Highs will be well into the 80s to near 90 both Tuesday and Wednesday. However, the high humidity accompanying the heat will push AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures into the mid-90s during the afternoons.
Central Park has not reached 90 so far this year. The latest NYC has hit 90 in the summer season was on July 14, 1985.
Limit your outdoor activities and seek shade or air conditioning when possible during the peak of the heat. Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
Relief will also come from some cooling showers and thunderstorms which will be most prevalent during the afternoons and evenings Tuesday and Wednesday.
A high pressure system over the Southeast will be responsible for the upcoming hot weather. The heat will gradually fade later this week as this high begins to weaken and cool air sags southward from Canada.
A push of cooler air will slash summerlike conditions across the Upper Midwest then in the Northeast beginning this weekend.
Summerlike warmth and humidity will continue through the rest of the week in the East, but locally heavy, gusty thunderstorms will also be in the picture.
