We will begin an extended heatwave in the Tri-State. It will stay warm and muggy with the low 70s at daybreak. The skies will stay mostly clear.


Wednesday is looking like it will be our hottest day of the week as high temperatures will make the low to mid 90s. It will be between 92 to 95 degrees for most. It’s the humidity which will make things even more difficult. Dew points will be into the mid-70s during the day, which will make feels-like temps climb between 100° and 105° that's why the Heat Advisory is out.

Skies stay sunny most of the day on Wednesday, but there will be cold front that sweeps through during the afternoon. That front will have the potential to spark up a few isolated storms during the afternoon, some of which may become strong or severe. The Storm Prediction Center has the entire Tri-State inside their Slight Risk for severe weather Wednesday. A forms of severe weather are possible with these storms, but the better threats are for large hail & damaging winds.

The storm chance comes into play in the late afternoon and evening hours and it's what we call conditional. Basically, if the atmosphere doesn't warm to a certain point, all the energy will not be released and storms won't develop. But if we can get past this "cap", storms could quickly pop and quickly turn severe. We'll be monitoring the radar closely on Wednesday.
