WEATHER SUMMARY FOR THE LOCAL TRI-STATE REGION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY  
353 PM EDT THU JUL 18 2019  
 
...DANGEROUS HEAT AND HUMIDITY TO ENGULF THE AREA FRIDAY THROUGH  
SUNDAY...  
 
A SLOW MOVING WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE AND ASSOCIATED FRONTAL  
BOUNDARY NEARBY, WILL CONTINUE TO CAUSE SHOWERS AND SCATTERED  
THUNDERSTORMS THIS EVENING. SOME OF THE SHOWERS COULD BE VERY  
HEAVY SINCE THE ATMOSPHERE IS LOADED WITH MOISTURE. QUICK  
FLOODING AT POOR DRAINAGE AREAS CAN OCCUR THIS EVENING.  
 
BY LATER THIS EVENING, SHOWERS WILL WEAKEN AND DISSIPATE AS HIGH  
PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE AREA FROM THE WEST. IT IS THIS HIGH  
PRESSURE BOTH AT THE SURFACE AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ALOFT THAT WILL  
HELP BRING THE DANGEROUS HEAT BUILD UP.  
 
HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL TEAM UP AND INCREASE FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.  
HEAT INDEX READINGS ARE EXPECTED TO GO ABOVE 100 DEGREES IN THE  
METRO REGION FRIDAY. THE HEAT WILL INCREASE AND SPREAD EAST  
SATURDAY, WHERE ALL LOCATIONS, EVEN THE EAST END OF LONG ISLAND,  
WILL SEE HEAT INDEX VALUES ABOVE 100 DEGREES. IN THE METRO AREA,  
WE COULD SEE HEAT INDEX VALUES AS HIGH AS 110-115 DEGREES  
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.  
 
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOT ALLOW THE CORE BODY TEMPERATURES TO RISE TO  
DANGEROUS LEVELS. TRY TO STAY OUT OF THE SUN, IN AIR CONDITIONED  
SPACES. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND DON'T OVER EXERT YOURSELF.
