After a bright -- and dry -- weekend it's about to get a lot hotter and stickier, Storm Team 4 says.
A heat wave is likely this week, with temperatures predicted to hit at least 90 degrees on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, meteorologists say.
A heat wave means that temperatures top 90 degrees for at least three days in a row. A heat advisory is in effect for much of New York and New Jersey. Click here for all weather alerts.
