It's a very hot, muggy day for the Fourth of July and most of the north country has a heat advisory to prove it.
The advisory is in effect for northern St. Lawrence County until 7 p.m. and for Jefferson and Lewis counties until 8 p.m.
The air temperature will be in the 90s, but the heat index -- which factors in the humidity -- will reach around 100 degrees.
And that sun will be beating down all day.
It's a good idea to stay hydrated, don't venture out into the sun, keep activities to a minimum, and seek air conditioning if you can. Click here to watch our interview with a local doctor about heat exhaustion.
It will be hot and sunny again Thursday, although not quite as hot. Temperatures should top out in the upper 80s.
There's a chance of rain Friday and things cool down some for the weekend, when we'll have sunshine and highs mostly in the mid- to upper-70s.
