Officially at least, the 2015 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season has started, but, unless a major storm (or at least the first significant disturbance) develops, there is not much to talk about in terms of tropical cyclones. For the first time in a very long time, the Tropical Atlantic Basin has received its first tropical cyclone before the Eastern Pacific has.
Now for the update on the heat wave in New York City and the Tri-State Area…
With temperatures in the 80’s and humidity percentages close to 99%, the majority of those going outdoors will likely feel fairly hot and sweaty. The heat index in some areas (how hot it actually feels) is in the 90’s. For those who are sensitive to the extreme heat, please heed all advisories set out by the National Weather Service (NWS.)
Stay hydrated and be safe!
