Expect the Big Apple to sizzle this weekend.
Excessive heat will descend on the three-state region Friday through Saturday — when temperatures are expected to hover in the mid-80s, about 10 degrees higher than the late-May average, forecasters said.
The summer feeling is expected to continue into Sunday, with a high of 92 degrees in Central Park, Fox Weather meteorologist Dylan DeBruyn told The Post.
“We’re going to see all the heat in the South and in Texas moving here,” DeBruyn said, adding that the only areas in the Northeast that are expected to escape the rising mercury are the coastal regions of southern New England and Long Island are.
Saturday’s record for Central Park of 93 degrees set in 1996 is unlikely to be beaten, but Sunday’s temperature could reach 92 and approach the 1941 record of 96.
“We’ll be a lot closer on Sunday,” DeBruyn said of the record potential.
However, records could be broken at the city’s airports on Sunday, including the 94-degree mark set in 1992 at LaGuardia Airport in Queens.
Elsewhere in the eastern US, potential records could be set as far away as Richmond, Virginia, where Saturday’s high is expected to hit 99 degrees.
It will also be particularly hot in Philadelphia on Saturday, where the city’s record high of 95 degrees set in 1934 is expected to drop to a forecast temperature of 98.
“I think one will probably be broken,” DeBruyn said.
Those looking to enjoy the summer weather should take basic precautions such as B. Staying hydrated and seeking shade, DeBruyn added.
“It’s just going to feel like a mid to late summer day,” he said.
