Heat Advisory for NYC as Temps Rise to Mid-90s
The hottest temperatures are expected for the afternoons.

The National Weather Service has extended a heat advisory for New York City as a combination of high temperatures and humidity bake the five boroughs.

Meteorologist David Stark says the advisory was initially issued Thursday but was extended Friday to last through Sunday at 8 p.m.

Starks says the heat index - the combination of the heat and humidity, or what it actually feels like outside - is likely to be in the mid-to-upper-90s on Saturday and Sunday. He says the hottest temperatures are expected in the afternoons and urged residents to stay in air conditioned rooms and to drink plenty of water.

The city's Housing Authority said Friday it will open cooling centers during regular business hours over the weekend.
