First heat wave of the summer for parts of New York

Local News

Portions of New York, including the Syracuse area, could see their first heat wave of this summer season today and tomorrow.

A technical “heat wave” is when temperatures reach at least 90 degrees for three consecutive days.

While we likely won’t feel that in the North Country, experts still are asking residents to take precautions.

Temps in northern New York could reach above 90 today for many of us, and it’s recommended that you stay hydrated, wear approriate clothes and to not be in direct sunlight for too long.

Also, if you have pets, make sure they have places to cool off and have plenty of water as well.

Looking at the forecast, the heat should subside in the next few days.
