Late August heat wave this week

Feels like temperatures head for mid 90s and higher

The summer doldrums are setting up as a heat wave hits the Tri-State this week. Tonight, another mild night with a mostly clear sky and some patchy river valley fog. Above average lows bottoming out around 70 degrees.

We hit 91 degrees Sunday and we're forecasting 92 for Monday. In fact, we'll likely hit 90 this entire work week and possibly the weekend as well. Rain chances are running low but those heat and humidity driven pop-up showers and storms should give some areas a brief cooling break as the week wears on. We are not in jeopardy of breaking any record highs as they stand above 100 degrees. Stay cool, hydrated and slather on the SPF creams. It's going to be a hot week!
