It should only get up to about 89 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
So the NWS hasn't issued the heat advisory here that's been issued for New Jersey, Philadelphia and Baltimore—where temperatures will be in the 90s.
Still, high 80s plus high humidity means folks should take care.
When it's this hot and humid, people should drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the sun (or take rest breaks in the shade), check up on neighbors and relatives, and wear light-weight clothing.
Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are dangers in this weather. The symptoms and treatments are described here. Heat stroke is an emergency—call 911.
Severe thunderstorms could develop this afternoon and evening across the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, the National Weather Service says.
Plus, temperatures won't drop below 70 overnight, forecasters predict.
The NWS Hazardous Weather Outlook now extends into Tuesday—ahead of the cold front that's predicted to come in Tuesday evening.
