NORTH SALEM, N.Y. - The heatwave that bullied the midwest last week is here to harass us, as threatened.
According to Accuweather.com, the temperature was in the high 80's by 9 a.m. on Friday, with a high of 101 degrees forecast for late afternoon. The nighttime will bring us into the 70 degree range, with another high of 95 at about 4 p.m. on Saturday.
As for Sunday, we can expect a high of 89, then into the comfortable low 80's by Monday.
The sun will be a constant daytime companion throughout the weekend, but the humidity will be mid-range. Those twin evils, dust and dander, will be extremely offensive to allergy sufferers. Grass and mold pollen levels will be on the high side. Those seeking outdoor exercise will not enjoy good conditions until Sunday.
The North Salem Ambulance Corps building at 14 Daniel Road will be open today until 7 p.m. It offers air-conditioning, television, drinks and board games. Anyone in need of a transportation can call (914) 277-4944 and request a lift.
