RealFeel temperatures can run 10 to 20 degrees higher during several hours each day. A heat wave in the Northeast is defined as three or more consecutive days with high temperatures of 90 degrees or greater.

A lack of a breeze in the humid conditions at night will make it very rough in urban areas without air conditioning or a fan.
