Hot, HOT, HOT!!!
The longest stretch of uninterrupted heat so far this summer is set to smother the city, beginning Sunday.
Expect about a week of sizzling temperatures, mostly in the lower to mid-90s, according to the National Weather Service. And don’t expect much of a respite at night, when the lows are predicted to fall only into the upper 70s.
And with the heat index (the mix of heat and humidity) expected to top 100 degrees next week, it’s a good idea to take the usual precautions: Drink lots of fluids; stay out of the sun; avoid excessive exertion.
We're surprised we haven't heard any comparisons to the 1995 heat wave that killed hundreds. Multiple days of ninety-plus degrees, little air movement, no cooling at night while the heat builds and builds. We'd certainly expect a spike in violence at the very least.
