NEW YORK — The tri-state area remains in the midst of dangerous sweltering heat extremes.
Temperatures will climb back into the mid-90s on Thursday, and the humidity could be even more oppressive, making it feel like 100+ degrees in many places. An excessive heat alert is already in place for certain inland locations on Thursday.
Conditions can be dangerous at times, for especially vulnerable people and pets, so be sure to check with older neighbors so they are alert and safe. Although it will feel sweltering for the next two days, temperatures won’t reach anywhere near record highs in Central Park (Thursday is 104) for the day.
