According to the meteorologist from AccuWeather Adam Sadvary, “Mid-week temperatures will reach typical mid-summer levels.”

Daytime temperatures will reach 90°F in locations across New York State such as Syracuse and Albany.

Most cities and towns in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast will see temperatures rise around 8 and 16 degrees Fahrenheit.

This is above typical values ​​for mid-to-late May, and several degrees higher than the highs observed over the weekend.

The air will be even warmer and more humid

As high pressure moves into the Atlantic by midweek, even warmer, moister air will flow into the region from the south, Sadvary explained.

Dew points will rise into the 60s across much of the mid-Atlantic states and the northeast coast.

The above just ahead of a cold front expected to cross the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes to the northeast Wednesday through Thursday.

Dew points can even rise to 70°F.

Authorities issued a warning for residents to go out to enjoy the dry, warm weather on Memorial Day and go to bodies of water.

The caveat is that most lake water temperatures are still generally between 50 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit, with only a few locations reaching around 70°F at this time.

Experts warn that any water temperature below 70 degrees Fahrenheit should be treated with caution.

And below this value, human breathing can begin to be negatively affected.

Against this backdrop, experts recommend residents who have not yet installed their air conditioning units to do so as soon as possible.

«If you haven’t installed your air conditioning units yet, the beginning of this week would be an optimal time to do so.»

That’s what AccuWeather meteorologist Adam Sadvary advised.

With temperatures and humidity levels on the rise, it is crucial to take steps to stay cool and safe during these extremely hot days.
