The National Weather Service has issued heat advisories for most of the Finger Lakes, Central New York, and Southern Tier.
Temperatures this afternoon are expected to cross through the 80s and settle in the 90s.
While some high temperature records could be broken, the addition of humidity will make it difficult to be outside for extended periods of time.
Those who are prone to difficulties in heat should drink plenty of water, limit outdoor activity, and stay out of direct sunlight as much as possible. The timing of the peak heat will be between 12 p.m. and 7 p.m.
As the sun starts to go down, so should temperatures. However, it will remain humid into the evening hours, so relief will be limited.
Looking ahead: What’s next?
The National Weather Service says some pop up showers or thunderstorms will be possible on Monday, but unlikely.
That changes on Tuesday, when showers and storms become likely during the afternoon and evening hours.
Some of these storms could produce strong, damaging winds and heavy rain. Localized flooding will be possible. However, widespread flooding is unlikely. The areas to watch includes those locations that saw heavy rain out of thunderstorms last week.
