Tuesday’s weather is expected to be sunny and hot around 90 degrees, but the heat and humidity really cranks up after that – and NBC New York says it could feel like 111 in New York City by the weekend.
According to an AccuWeather forecast, a four-day stretch of 90-degree-plus temperatures will begin on Friday, with the likely high of 97 degrees occurring on Shabbos.
Mike Clendenin, a spokesperson for energy company Con Edison, told Pix11 News on Monday it’s anticipating a potential repeat of this past Saturday’s blackout.
“We expect that there could be service outages,” he said. “Those things happen during heat waves. Our crews are ready to respond. We are going to be prepared for this. It’s going to be intense.”
