"Temperatures in those areas (Niagara & Orleans) will get up to the mid 90s, and with the humidity factored in you're looking at the apparent temperature, or the heat index right around 100,"
-- Meterologist Bob Hamilton, at the National Weather Service.
AccuWeather says the Buffalo metro region will still see hot temperatures, with clear skies and a high of 91 degrees.
The temperature further north and into the Finger Lakes could be as high as 96, Hamilton says.
