NYC Heat Index Could Reach 108 On Friday

(Friday, July 19th, 2013)

hwThe National Weather Service says an excessive heat warning and an air quality alert have been issued for the New York City area.

The Weather Service predicts a high temperature around 99 on Friday – and a heat index as high as 108.

The excessive heat warning is in effect from 11 a.m. to until 8 p.m. Friday. The air quality alert runs from 11 a.m. to midnight.

On Saturday, a high of around 94 is predicted – with a heat index as high as 101 degrees.

But heavy rain is expected, and that should cause gradual cooling starting on Sunday.
