Global Warming? Duh!

AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING.

HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO CLIMB TO BETWEEN 98 TO 104 DEGREES ACROSS NEW YORK CITY AND NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY TUESDAY AND AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY. COMBINED WITH RATHER HIGH HUMIDITY LEVELS…THIS WILL RESULT IN HEAT INDICES CLIMBING TO BETWEEN 105 AND 113 DEGREES TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND POSSIBLY SLIGHTLY HIGHER THEN THIS WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN OPPRESSIVE AT NIGHT AS THE TEMPERATURES ONLY DROP TO AROUND 80 DEGREES.

AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH MEANS THAT A PROLONGED PERIOD OF HOT TEMPERATURES IS EXPECTED. THE COMBINATION OF HOT TEMPERATURES AND HIGH HUMIDITY WILL COMBINE TO CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN WHICH HEAT ILLNESSES ARE POSSIBLE. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS… STAY IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED ROOM…STAY OUT OF THE SUN…AND CHECK UP ON RELATIVES AND NEIGHBORS.

NEW YORK CITY RESIDENTS SHOULD CALL 3 1 1 TO IDENTIFY COOLING CENTER LOCATIONS AND OBTAIN BEAT THE HEAT SAFETY TIPS.
