NEW YORK (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued an extreme heat warning for the New York metropolitan area.

It says dangerous levels of heat and humidity are on tap for Sunday. The advisory is in effect from noon to 8 p.m.

An excessive heat warning is issued when the combination of heat and humidity is expected to make it feel like it's 105 degrees or greater.

The advisory covers the city's five boroughs, Long Island, Rockland and Westchester counties and parts of New Jersey. Slight relief is expected for Monday with temperatures in the high 80s. There's a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the evening.
