There is an end in sight.
New Yorkers suffering through the city’s first official summer heat wave can expect temperatures in the low 80s on Sunday, perfect to venture back out outside.
“A cold front is going to sweep through … that’s going to do two things, knock the air temperature back about 10 degrees, but the nice thing about it is it won’t be as humid,” Christopher Tate, Fox Forecast Center meteorologist told The Post.
“Central Park is probably going to be packed. Prospect Park, Van Cortlandt Park, all the big parks are going to be very popular. Just bring some sunscreen.”
On Saturday, the temperature in the city could hit a high of 93 degrees, which will be affected by the storms that are expected later in the afternoon.
As of Saturday afternoon, 98 million people were under heat advisories throughout the nation — but that statistic should decrease.
“I can’t get you a number for tomorrow, but I can say the number will be much lower as cooler, less humid air moves into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states,” said Greg Diamond, senior weather producer and meteorologist at Fox Forecast Center.
New York City is also under a heat advisory, which will end at 8 p.m.
Heat-related visits to emergency rooms this week soared alongside the daily maximum temperature, according to city data.
On Wednesday, when the maximum daily temperature was 89 degrees Fahrenheit, hospital ERs saw only six heat-related visits. The next day, as the maximum temperature skyrocketed to 101 degrees, ER visits did, too, to 25.
About 350 people die prematurely each summer due to the heat in New York City, accounting for 2% of all deaths from May to September, according to a recent annual report by the city’s Health Department.
Heat-related deaths in the city have increased over the past decade, according to the report. While some of these deaths are directly caused by heat exhaustion and hyperthermia, the majority of the fatalities are the result of heat worsening chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
On Friday, the Big Apple reached a high of 96 degrees and the number of heat-related emergency room visits continued to spike to 28 — the most so far this summer.
Once the heat dissipates Sunday, Big Apple residents can enjoy some cooler temperatures — especially for those traveling via mass transit.
“I’m looking forward to Sunday,” Tate said.
“It will be much nicer, both above ground and underground in the subway.”
