A heat wave is gripping the Tri-State and temperatures will feel closer to 100 degrees all week. Lows tonight bottom out in the lower 70s and that will be the case for the rest of the week as well.

A dome of high pressure will slide to our east toward the Appalachians and bring more moisture and heat our way from the southwest. This flow will ensure the heat stays around all week. By Thursday, a cool front will drop down from the Great Lakes Region and provide a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. That's our best chance for scattered showers this week. Small pop-up chances will come from the instability brought on by heat and humidity. Stay hydrated and take frequent breaks from the heat if you have to work outdoors.
