First Alert Weather: CBS2's 5/22 Sunday morning update 04:20

It's another hot one to finish out the weekend, but relief is on the way!

Temps will once again climb into the low 90s for inland locations, topping out right around 90 degrees again in the city.


With the humidity, it'll feel more like the mid 90s. Of course, the coasts will be cooler with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s at the beaches. 

Expect partly sunny skies with a slim shower risk into early afternoon, primarily north and west.

A better chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms for everyone rolls in after 2 p.m. as a cold front approaches. 


Some storms could be on the strong to severe side with gusty winds, especially away from the coasts and in our northwestern counties. Not a washout, but just keep an eye to the sky later on. 

The front rolls through tonight ushering in a drier and more seasonable airmass. Highs on Monday will be back into the mid 70s. 


Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Preventing heatstroke

With the weekend warmup, New York health officials are reminding people to use extra caution this weekend and offering guidance to prevent heatstroke.

They say never leave vulnerable adults, children or pets alone in a car. Temperatures in the 60s outside can cause the temperature inside the car to rise above 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

Twenty-three children died in 2021 after being left in hot cars, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
