It's going to feel like we're standing on the doorstep to the gates of hell for the next few days in Central New York. Some schools are even dismissing kids early to beat the heat.

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for what could be record breaking temperatures. It goes into effect at 12PM on Tuesday, June 18 and remains up until 8 PM Thursday, June 20.

Heat & Humidity Canceling Classes

It's not just the heat. It's the humidity. Temperatures will be in the 90s but the heat index will reach triple digits. So basically it'll feel like we're wearing a wet, fur, coat on a summer day.

It'll be too warm for students, especially at schools with no air conditioning. The Syracuse City School District and Central Square have canceled afternoon classes this week.

If you or someone you know suffers a heat stroke, call 911 immediately. Cool down immediately in a cool place, a cool bath, or in AC. You can also place ice on wrists, ankles, and armpits, or wrap up in a cool, wet sheet.
