  • Heat Advisory Excessive Heat Watch and Warnings

The most intense heat and humidity will likely last into early next week, with Monday and Tuesday both seeing high temperatures return into the upper 90s and triple-digit heat indices.

On Thursday, the extreme heat can be found over the Rockies and Central Plains, with Denver expecting a record high of 103 degrees, the city's hottest day since it tied the all-time Denver maximum of 105 in late June 2012.

A heat advisory is issued when the anticipated heat index- a formula based on air temperature and humidity - reaches or exceeds 100 degrees. If you don't have air conditioning, visit cool areas like a recreation center or library. "Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sunshine, and check up on relatives and neighbors". The peak of the heat will occur today, but the next few days won't exactly be cool days.

A unsafe heat wave will have more than half of the country sweltering over the Fourth of July holiday. Officials also encourage people to ensure pets have enough food and water. The current expected high temperature is 98. Numbers may be slightly cooler along Lake Erie. Factor in the even higher humidity and the heat index will climb well past 100 degrees.

Forecasters expect similar severe weather, also including the possibility of flash floods, from Kansas to MI on Saturday, when the extreme heat will spread throughout much of the Midwest, UPI reports.

Consecutive days of risky heat and humidity will bring an increased risk for heat-related illness. A cold front will finally bring relief by the end of the week along with some showers and thunderstorms. Heat stroke is an emergency - call 911.
