'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

Still very hot and humid with blistering sunshine.

The Fourth of July will be exactly what you think it should be. HOT!

Looking ahead, the National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch Wednesday, to affect a seven-county area in Minnesota. Today, however, that will likely not be the case as we mark the third day in a row over 90 degrees, making it officially a heat wave. It looks like most of us will be around the upper 80s today & tomorrow. Sight chance for severe weather.

Almost 100 million people could see temperatures climb above 95 degrees Fahrenheit this week, with a majority of those residing in the eastern third of the nation.

While temperatures topping 90 degrees are not too uncommon for New York City, it is rare to see the heat last more than a couple of days. Another major warm-up is on the way for the central U.S. Widespread risky heat is expected from the Plains to the Midwest and Northeast on the Fourth of July with heat index values into the 90s and low 100s in spots. Again, there will be hazy sunshine, with some high wispy clouds at times. It suggests working outside in the early morning or evening to avoid the hottest of the day's temperatures and wearing light-weight and loose-fitting clothing to avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke. "Intake of alcoholic beverages should be limited, especially when there is no means to keep cool, such as in air conditioning", said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. Also, don't forget to check on the young, the elderly, and pets, all groups more susceptible to the excessive heat.

Clouds Saturday blocked just enough sunshine to prevent any record highs from being broken, however, Michael Priante, a metetrologist at WeatherWorks in Hackettstown said a record could be broken in the Lehigh Valley by the end of the day Sunday.

A prolonged heat wave is gripping the Northeast, with heat index values near 100 degrees Monday in major cities like Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; New York City; Hartford, Connecticut; and Albany, New York. Sunny. High: 70s - near 80 degrees.
