Heat Advisory Excessive Heat Watch and Warnings

Those looking to cool down are urged to visit one of the cooling centers or pools at a Boston Centers for Youth and Families location.

It didn't take long for the temperature to reach 90 degrees at Boston's Logan Airport this morning.

Temperatures will be a touch cooler in the Midwest, but heat index levels will still hover around 100 degrees from Texas to MI. Additional heat advisories are possible for Sunday. Highs will rise back into the lower 90s during the afternoon hours and the humid conditions will create heat indices near 100°. The worst of the heat is likely to peak on Sunday afternoon.

The unsafe heat that is on the way raises some issues that everyone should be aware of.

The NWS posted a reminder Friday that heat kills more people each year than tornadoes, lightning and floods. If you are out in the sun, be sure to drink plenty of water and use sunblock to protect your skin.

In some areas it could feel as hot as 95-100 degrees Monday and Tuesday, prompting a hazardous weather outlook in Maine's interior, according to the weather service. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water. When you factor in the humidity, we're again expecting our heat index between 100°-105°F.

TOMORROW - Sunny, Hot and Humid.




The heat index for each day is expected to top out around 108 degrees.

PRECAUTIONARY: An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur.

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.

TODAY - Partly Cloudy, Hit and Miss Thunderstorms.

Clear, warm, and sticky.

Locally, 2 to 4 inches of rain is possible from northern Iowa to Wisconsin with any slow-moving storm capable of bringing flash flooding.
