The National Weather Service has issued a heat recommendation because the heat index is expected to rise to 100 degrees in the three-state area on Tuesday.
Following warnings for Boston and Hartford on Monday, the advice has extended across the northeast and east coast, where warnings were issued from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm to exercise caution while hot air settled and posed a danger.
The humid conditions were set to make the conditions so uncomfortable in places from Southeast NY to South New England that the feeling temperature was on average 5 to 10 degrees.

A Monday recommendation remained in North Connecticut, Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts, and the lower-lying areas of Western Massachusetts.
Some relief is expected on Wednesday when a cold front to the east coast is expected, which will unleash scattered thunderstorms – especially in the northeast – as well as heavy rainfall and flash storms.
The front will slowly move eastward on Tuesday from the Lower Great Lakes, Ohio Valley and Lower Mississippi Valley.
By the beginning of Thursday it passes a large part of the northeast, Central Atlantic Ocean, in the central to southern Appalachians.
Two areas of the Atlantic basin are being monitored for tropical developments that could send extra moisture to the southeast later this week.
