Thunderstorms won’t bring relief from relentless heat

A few thunderstorms are possible though the early evening hours Tuesday evening,  potentially packing large hail and winds in excess of 60 mph.

But the rain won’t offer relief. The tri-state area is in for another warm steamy night with temperatures only dropping to the low to mid 70s.

Wednesday will be — surprise —  hazy, hot, and humid once again as highs are expected to reach or surpass 90. If we do reach 90, this will be considered our second heat wave of the year, with three consecutive days of temperatures exceeding 90.

No heat advisories or air quality alerts have yet to be issued for Wednesday.  Spotty thunderstorms storms will develop in the afternoon and some of them could be severe.
