Hazy, hot, and humid weather sees NWS issue a Heat Advisory through Tuesday night

08 July 2024- Extremely hot temperatures and beyond muggy humidity has made its return to Central Pennsylvania, causing the National Weather Service to advise caution when going outside the next few days.

The NWS in State College has issued a Heat Advisory from now until 8pm on Tuesday, with heat indexes set to be up to 105. This affects Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York Counties in Central Pennsylvania, but expect extremely high temperatures across the entire tristate area.

Hot temps and high humidity, the NWS says, may cause heat illnesses and everyone is advised to drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the sun when possible, and stay in an air-conditioned room. Young children and pets should NEVER be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during hot weather when the inside temperatures of cars can reach LETHAL levels in a matter of only minutes.

Overnight low temperatures do not look to be much of a relief either, according to the NWS. Air will likely still be warm and oppressively muggy. This muggy weather will likely continue for an extended period of time with the arrival of moisture from Hurricane Beryl, according to News Talk 1037FM staff meteorologist Pat Pagano. His full forecast comes below.
