This sweltering heat prompted the weather service to issue a heat advisory for the city, which will be in effect from 11am to 8pm on Monday. 

According to the service, the heat and humidity will result in high heat index values, meaning it will feel hotter than the air temperature indicates. 

In New York, that heat index is expected to be around 100 and the highest will occur during the afternoon. 

Extreme heat can cause illness and death among at-risk populations who cannot stay cool and weather experts have warned New Yorkers to stay inside to avoid extended heat exposure. 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo urged New Yorkers to take precautions against heat related illnesses and limit strenuous outdoor physical activity.

‘With prolonged heat and humidity in the forecast, I urge New Yorkers to take necessary steps to stay cool,’ Cuomo said. 

‘As temperatures continue to rise, I encourage everyone to check on your friends and neighbors who may need some extra help and to cool off at state parks pools and cooling centers.’ 

Public schools in Jersey City announced on Twitter that they will close early on Monday due to the ‘excessive heat’.
