NWS: Stretch of above average heat over in York

The seemingly never-ending streak of blistering heat in York County is over, according to the National Weather Service.

Meteorologist Greg DeVoir said Tuesday appeared to be the last day temperatures would continue to far exceed average highs for this area during the summer.

The most recent heat wave began Thursday and included multiple heat advisories and a few days of the heat index surpassing 100 degrees.

DeVoir said the temperatures will be just a few degrees above average the rest of the week, with highs around 87 or 88 degrees, and near to below average highs beginning next week.

DeVoir added that it will still be humid, and there is potential to have more days this summer that far surpass averages.

"There's still warm air to be had," he said. "But it's going to be hard to top this last stretch."
