New York Weather: 7/17 Wednesday Noon Forecast


AND I’M CHRIS WRAGGE. NOW ON CBS 2 AND STREAMING ON CBS. IN NEW YORK, WE BEGIN WITH THE EXCESSIVE HEAT IN THE TRI- STATE AREA TODAY. WE ARE UNDER A HEAT ADVISORY EXPECTED TO FEEL LIKE NEAR 100 DEGREES. ELISE FINCH HAS THE NUMBERS. GOOD AFTERNOON TO YOU, CHRIS, MARY, YOU ARE RIGHT. TAKE A LOOK. WE HAVE MORE OF A HAZY SUNSHINE THING HAPPENING THIS NOON. BUT IT IS DEFINITELY HOT. PARTLY CLOUDY ALREADY 91 DEGREES. WINDS ARE SOUTHWEST AT 7 MILES PER HOUR. BUT IT IS NOT DOING ANYTHING TO COOL US OFF. SO WE DO HAVE A NUMBER OF LOCATIONS ALREADY IN THE 90s. 90 FOR SCARSDALE AND 92 ALPINE. SUMMIT AND CRANBURY ALSO AT 90. TOMS RIVER AT 95. THE PROBLEM TODAY IS NOT ONLY IS IT HOTTER THAN WHAT WE HAD YESTERDAY, IT’S ALSO MORE HUMID. THE DEW POINTS ARE ALL IN THE 70s AND WE CONSIDER DEW POINTS THAT ARE AT 70 OR GREATER TO BE OPPRESSIVE HUMIDITY. WE ARE AT 73 IN CENTRAL PARK, 76 FOR ROSLYN AND TOMS RIVER, 77 FOR SUMMIT. SO THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE. YOU PUT TOGETHER THE TEMPERATURES AND THOSE DEW POINTS, IT FEELS LIKE 99 DEGREES RIGHT NOW IN NEW YORK CITY. 102 IN SUMMIT. 95 FOR SCARSDALE AND DARIEN FEELS LIKE 111 DEGREES IN TOMS RIVER. SO WE DO HAVE HEAT ALERTS IN EFFECT. AT THE SAME TIME, WE ARE TRACKING A SYSTEM THAT’S SCHEDULED TO BRING US SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATER TODAY. YOU CAN SEE IT OFF TO OUR WEST.
