An Excessive Heat Warning is now in effect for Southern Westchester until 10 p.m. Sunday. Northern Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties are under an Excessive Heat Watch through Sunday evening.

The high heat and thunderstorms are forecast to continue through Saturday and into Sunday night with heavy rains in combination with very high heat indexes on tap. The chance of rain Saturday is 30 percent during the afternoon, increasing to 50 percent Saturday night. Heat indexes could reach as high as 105.

Sunday calls for more of the same with a 40 percent of showers in the afternoon, increasing to 50 percent in the evening with possible heavy rains. Temperatures will once again soar, with heat indexes again reaching to near 100 degrees.
