Here in the Hudson Valley, the high will be at 90 degrees on Monday and around 95 to 100 degrees through the weekend.

"Starting on Tuesday and lasting for about a week, high temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 90s, with an outside chance at 100 degrees — something that has only happened twice on record during the month of June in the Hudson Valley," Hudson Valley weather expert Ben Noll wrote on Facebook.

For many days this week, with the humidity, it’s going to feel like it is over 100 degrees, officials say.

"High humidity is also expected from Tuesday onward, reaching a peak from Friday through the weekend with the heat index ranging from 100 to 105 — levels that can be dangerous for sensitive groups," Noll adds.

Forecasters say New York State will be under a "heat dome" which will be trapping the high-pressure system and high temperatures for about a week.
