Tropical-Like Humidity Has Returned To Western New York

JAMESTOWN – The dreaded heat and humidity has came back to the region once again after a short preview of the upcoming season.
The humidity has spiked back oppressive levels, adding a very noticeable “stick” to the air and that same level of humidity will stay around for the next couple of days.
Tuesday will be the “big day” sort of speak. That is where we expect the hottest temperatures and highest humidity values. Air temps will be upper 80s to lower 90s with heat indices (feels like temps) in the mid 90s.
The National Weather Service in Buffalo has posted up a Heat Advisory for the Niagara Frontier, mainly for areas south of Lake Ontario and including both the Buffalo and Rochester metro areas, going into effect at Noon Tuesday and running through 8:00 PM Tuesday evening. Heat indices here could reach the upper 90s to lower 100s.

While Tuesday should mainly be dry, with the high humidity in place for much of the week, the potential for scattered afternoon showers and storms are on the table for several days this upcoming week, but no day should be total washout.
