The merciless streak of smothering humidity and blazing heat that has gripped the tri-state area for what feels like forever sticks around another three days at least, and so does the chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

Temperatures rebound to the low-to-mid-90s both Monday and Tuesday, though the humidity will make it feel like a sweat-dripping 100 degrees or worse for many during parts of the day. A heat advisory has been extended through Tuesday. Check the latest weather alerts for your neighborhood here.

Isolated storms are possible Monday, similar to the hit-or-miss ones that triggered torrential, brief downpours across parts of New York City and New Jersey late last week and on Sunday afternoon.
