Risky heat wave hitting US over Fourth of July weekend

Clear, warm, and sticky.

It's extremely hot out there.

Numerous major cities in the Midwest and Northeast - from Chicago to Washington, D.C. - began a heat wave on Friday.

SUNDAY - Sunny and Dangerously Hot and humid, Heat Index 100+.

Mayor Lovely Warren has initiated a Cool Sweep Heat Emergency operation in anticipation of forecasted temperatures exceeding 90 degrees.

Kennedy says the weather service could issue a heat advisory for Monday or Tuesday as the index could top 100 degrees.

Denver reached 105 degrees on Thursday, tying its all-time record-high temperature, so for those clinging to the beaches in NY, it could be worse.

On Sunday, the sun will rise at 6:01:43 a.m. and set at 9:07:18 p.m.

The Weather Channel added that strong upper-level ridges of high pressures - or "heat domes" - contribute to the hot temperatures.

Scattered storms will be likely Saturday night although most models have backed off on rainfall amounts (still one that indicates some healthy rainfall totals) but something to keep an eye on. Those readings will be below our record highs of 98 and 99, but are still well above our normal high of 81. Heat index values will again be into the upper 90s and even the triple digits for some. And it will feel more like 101 degrees both days. Drink plenty of water and have places to go where you can cool off, preferably somewhere with A/C. Air-conditioning will be the best resource to stay cool tomorrow and Sunday.

Heat illness are possible for those active outdoors or those susceptible to heat illnesses, such as children or the elderly. The good news is that Thursday will be the hottest day, according to the Weather Service. The heat index is expected to climb to more than 100 degrees Sunday. These days will also remain dry, which means you shouldn't count on a thunderstorm to provide much cooling relief and instead seek out air conditioning, pools, or the shore where sea-breezes each day will limit how hot the coast gets each afternoon.
