The National Weather Service issued its first heat advisory of the year for Central New York on Monday. The advisory covers most of the Upstate area, including Cortland, Broome, Chenango, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Yates counties. Temperatures are predicted to reach the high 90s, with the humidity making some days feel like 104 degrees. Accuweather estimates temperatures in Central New York will be 3 to 4 degrees higher than average.


On average, high June temperatures in Upstate New York usually stay in the upper 70s, with lows in the upper 50s. High temperature records are expected to be broken each day of the advisory, with Wednesday expected to be 2 degrees hotter than their current records.

With temperatures projected as high as this, be sure to take precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe. Never leave your child unattended in the car – temperatures can rise nearly 20 degrees in 10 minutes on a sunny day, and children’s bodies heat up nearly 5 times faster than an adult. Put your phone and other belongings near the child to remind you of who else is in the car. 

Do not drive your pets around during the heat advisory, as dogs overheat much faster than humans and cannot sweat it out.

Be sure to keep up on your vehicle’s maintenance. Hot weather can damage your car’s battery, as well as put more strain on the cooling system. Make sure your tires are inflated at all times, and check all your fluids, like oil, brake fluid, and coolant.
