Heat indices are expected around 100 degrees . Avoid strenuous outdoor activity. Info: http://NYC.gov/beattheheat or http://weather.gov/okx. Multilingual and ASL Link: http://on.nyc.gov/2rjosBI.

Persistent heat and humidity continues throughout much of the central and eastern United States, while dangerously hot temperatures return to the Southwest. Multiple rounds of severe storms will bring widespread rainfall from the north-central Plains to the Upper Midwest along a stalled frontal boundary into the weekend.

Heat Advisory remains in effect for much of our forecast region until at least 8PM Thursday. Thursday will feature the highest forecast heat indices of the week as dewpoints are forecast to be a few degrees higher. #NYCwx #NYwx #NJwx #CTwx

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a disturbance in the Caribbean that hasn't even developed into a named system, but in just a few days, it may make landfall as a powerful hurricane on the Gulf Coast.
