NYC should expect some relief from the heatwave this evening, Mayor de Blasio said in a press conference. The mayor encouraged New Yorkers to be mindful of the electrical grid of the city and to limit use of electricity, if possible.
"There should be mindfulness about not using anymore energy than we have to," De Blasio said. "Air conditioning should be set to 78 degrees."
