A heat advisory is issued for New York City when the combination

least 95 degrees for two or more consecutive days... or
100 degrees for any length of time.

To reduce risk during outdoor work... the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments.

conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that
has air conditioning. To find a NYC cooling center call 3-1-1 or
