I thought we'd already experience some heat this summer, but the weatherman just said that we've only had one 90 degree day so far this year (last summer we had 23!). It looks like things are about to get mighty hot, though. Just read the following advisory:
BERGEN-EASTERN PASSAIC-ESSEX-HUDSON-UNION-SOUTHERN WESTCHESTER- NEW YORK (MANHATTAN)-BRONX-KINGS (BROOKLYN)-QUEENS- 232 PM EDT SAT JUL 15 2006
...EXCESSIVE HEAT OUTLOOK...
HEAT AND HUMIDITY ACROSS THE TRI-STATE REGION IS EXPECTED TO REACH DANGEROUS LEVELS DURING THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. HEAT INDICES OF AROUND 105 DEGREES ARE FORECASTED DURING THE MID AFTERNOON HOURS ON MONDAY AND AGAIN ON TUESDAY. THE HIGHEST READINGS WILL OCCUR IN THE NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY METROPOLITAN AREA. EVEN ALONG THE OCEAN...HEAT INDICES ARE EXPECTED TO REACH THE 100 DEGREE MARK DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS. AT NIGHT... CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN VERY WARM AND VERY MUGGY.
