HEAT WAVE: It's official. We hit 90 degrees three days in a row, and Islip had record-breaking heat Wednesday. The high was 92 degrees, breaking the previous record of 90 in 1985.
HEAT ADVISORY: Extended through 8 p.m. Thursday with feels-like temperatures 95 to 99 degrees.
RELIEF: It will still be quite warm and humid into the weekend, but next week will feel better after we get some scattered showers through the weekend.
TROPICS: Watching Tropical Storm Lee, which could become a major hurricane later this week and pass east of the Bahamas by Monday. Right now, the storm track is just east of Long Island. This could bring large waves and dangerous conditions on the water, beach erosion and coastal flooding.
Storm Team Meteorologist Sam Augeri says the heat and humidity will stick around Thursday before rain chances move in for the weekend.
