NEW YORK CITY — July is going out on a searing note with temperatures expected to soar into the 90s for the next five days.
Temperatures could reach a high of 91 degrees on Tuesday, with Wednesday getting up to 94 degrees — putting the city under a heat advisory until 6 p.m. that day, forecasters said.
Temperatures will likely dip into the mid 70s at night, but lingering humidity is expected, according to the National Weather Service.
Thursday’s high is also expected to reach 90 degrees — which would make this the second heat wave of the summer. Friday and Saturday could also top 90 degrees, forecasters said.
The expected Tuesday high will still likely fall well short of the July 28 record of 97 degrees, set in 1999.
