Another blast of heat to hit NYC Monday and Tuesday

It’s another scorcher.

The mercury is expected to soar to a sizzling 92 degrees on Monday in the Big Apple – and then again on Tuesday.

And with the humidity, the real-feel temperature “will be around 100 degrees this afternoon,” AccuWeather senior meteorologist Paul Walker told The Post Monday.

Walker added that Tuesday’s weather conditions will “pretty much [be] a carbon copy” of Monday’s with partly sunny skies and a high of 92 degrees.

Temperatures in the city on Sunday climbed into the high 80s, with a high of 88 degrees recorded in Central Park.

By Wednesday, the mercury is predicted to dip back into the high 80s with showers and thunderstorms set to soak the city, thanks to an eastward-moving cold front, Walker said.

Walker noted that New York City is “not officially” in a heatwave since it takes three consecutive days of temps reaching 90 degrees or higher to be called a heatwave.

“We’re only today and tomorrow,” Walker said. “The heat by Wednesday will back off.”
