"A heat advisory may be needed during some of those periods", according to a hazardous weather outlook issued by the NWS.

The heat index is expected to reach 100 degrees although the temperatures will be in the low 90s. Another major warm-up is on the way for the central U.S. Widespread unsafe 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.

The final day of June on Saturday brought the first day of temperatures soaring well into the 90s.

The heat wave is expected to persist through most of this week with temperatures above 90 degrees through Thursday. Cooler sea breezes will develop on the shore each day with highs in the 80s.

The weather service warned people to "take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside".

Extremely hot and humid with hazy sunshine.

Greenalalt said the temperatures expected today in the Cleveland area are about 8 to 10 degrees higher than the average 82 degrees for this time of year.

But until then most of ME, with the exception of coastal areas, should expect to endure extremely hot weather.

With the unsafe heat and humidity lasting through Tuesday afternoon, there is an Excessive Heat Warning in place for the I-95 corridor until 8PM on Tuesday night. The combination of heat and humidity increases the risk for heat stress for those performing strenuous activity outside, the weather service wrote.

Another heat advisory was issued for Tuesday.

This heat wave which began last week continues as the D.C. region prepares for another scorcher heading into the July 4th holiday.

"Heat-related illnesses possible through this time period, especially for at-risk populations such as the elderly, very young, and those with mental illnesses", the NY weather service office warned. The heat index is forecast to rise to 107 there on Monday.

The best places to spend this week are in a swimming pool or in air conditioning.

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