While temperatures are in the 90s, with the humidity the National Weather Services says it could feel more 104 to 107.

Temperatures are predicted to be in the low 90s, but the air will feel closer to 95 degrees.

Truly, no break in the heat or humidity through the holiday week with our best storm chances on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (40 to 50% chances).

Storms are possible in the afternoon and evening hours, staying mainly west of I-81, said Storm Team 4 meteorologist Amelia Draper. There is a chance for an afternoon shower and thunderstorm, with some storms being severe.

Extreme heat to stick around GTA for most of the week
Fire crews are expected to knock on about 5,000 doors during the heat wave, and they will offer residents a cooler place to stay. In the meantime, Wednesday is stickier with a high of 34 C and humidex of 40 with an overnight low of 21 C.

Heat and hazardous weather advisories have been posted across the state as ME braces for another day of sweltering humidity and warm air. While the high pressure will make it hard for any t-storms to fire, a weak cold front will try to approach from our northwest Tuesday bringing a slight chance for an isolated PM t-storm, mainly north and west of the Lehigh Valley. For many communities, the heat index is forecast to reach as high as 110 degrees.

Too hot: After yesterday, you might have thought it couldn't get any worse. Unfortunately, a cold front roaring through the region is what enacts this change and it will very likely fire up some strong, gusty thunderstorms as we trade out the humid air for the dry, more comfortable stuff. We stay hot and sticky into Independence Day, but thankfully it will be slightly less unforgiving.

Moving into next week, higher temperatures and humidity are expected to continue, but showers are possible, which may knock some temperatures down. Temperatures are forecast to be in the low 90s.

An excessive heat warning has been issued for Louisville. The director the New York State Office for the Aging is warning senior citizens and their caregivers about high temperatures. Highs will run 81-85 Saturday & 83-88 Sunday with sunshine & a few clouds.
