Heads up: NWS Heat Advisory for New York, Starting Monday at Noon

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Heat Advisory for New York City. It begins on Monday at noon and extends until Tuesday at 6:00 a.m. But they expect it lasting longer.

And now it has, going all the way through Tuesday and Wednesday until 8:00 p.m., with highs in the mid to upper 90s, both days.

“Heat index values up to 104 expected.”

While today won’t be much of a break, with high humidity and temperatures approaching 90, the weather service predicts highs in the 90s through Wednesday.

Locally, the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp. got on top of things on Saturday, announcing an open cooling center daily, from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. in the Good Shepherd Community Center (543 Main St.).

RIOC will keep the cooling center open until, at least, Thursday. If you’re feeling the heat, it’s the place to go for relief.
