BUFFALO, N.Y. — The last couple of days have been hot and intensely humid throughout Western New York, but especially in the Niagara Frontier.
The combination of air temperatures in the low 90s and dew point temperatures in the low 70s made several spots feel as hot as 100 degrees Tuesday afternoon. A Heat Advisory had been in effect for much of WNY, but it expired at 8 p.m. as temperatures slowly dropped.
June has been a very "up and down" month with a couple of streaks of hot weather separated by some almost chilly days when highs were stuck in the low 60s for many. This most recent stretch of hot humid weather saw a temperature of at least 85 degrees at the Buffalo Airport for 6 days in a row.
Tuesday night will still be very warm and uncomfortably humid, but temperatures will end up much closer to normal for late June on Wednesday. The trade off is the chance for more scattered showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday, especially in the Southern Tier as a cold front finally move through.
That front will bring air with much lower humidity for the end of this week.
