HEAT ALERT: Heat advisory in effect through Tuesday; stray storms possible

WHAT'S NEW: Today is the hottest day of the week.  Today is the third consecutive morning that the warmest low temperature record was broken at Islip, as the temperature never dipped below 76 degrees at night. This breaks the old record from 2013. Heat Advisory and dangerous rip currents continue through tomorrow. Feels like temperatures in the upper 90s to low 100s this afternoon.
WHAT'S NEXT: Ragweed allergies are peaking this week and next. Showers and storms arrive after 4 p.m. today, lasting through tomorrow with clouds through much of Thursday. There will not be enough rain to end the drought. Pleasantly less humid weather arrives heading into the weekend.
