Relief from the heat is a few months. A "big transition" to much colder air is expected for the northeast at the end of September and into October, according to AccuWeather's veteran meteorologist Paul Pastelok.

"I think we could start to see some flurries in the higher elevations as we get into very late September and October, but lower elevations may wait until later October or November," Pastelok said. "It is not rare for flurries to fall in these areas in October, but it is about two weeks ahead of the historical average for the first snowflakes of the season."

The first frost of the year could happen in October along with some snow for New York State, AccuWeather warns.
