Last Blast Of ‘Oppressive’ Heat Headed Our Way
If you love your Summer's to be hot, hazy and warm, you've had nothing to complain about since early June. If you're the type who can't put away the bathing suits and shorts fast enough for much cooler Fall weather, you're gonna have to way a little bit longer, at least according to the latest weather forecast. One more blaze of summer heat is headed our way, and temps will feel like they're nearing 100 degrees.
As we approach Labor Day weekend, the first fews days of the week will be scorchers.
Things will really crank up Monday through Wednesday. The humidity will soar, too, reaching levels the National Weather Service considers "oppressive."
The combination will push the heat index, a measure of how warm the air feels on the skin, close to or even above 100 degrees.
A hazardous weather outlook has been issued for all of Upstate New York.
"An unusually hot and humid air mass will build Monday through Wednesday," the outlook said. "Heat indices will push into lower to mid 90s for much of the area Monday, then upper 90s to near 100 on Tuesday and Wednesday."
Drink it in guys, we all know the cool, Fall weather turns into icy blizzards in the blink of an eye.
