Temperatures to peak close to 100 degrees in NYC

- The National Weather Service has extended a Heat Advisory for Ohio County until 7 p.m. Sunday night.

The National Weather Service has stated hat the heat index in Chicago is expected to reach 115 degrees on Saturday. Add the oppressive humidity and the temperature together and you may potentially see heat indices as high as 108 degrees...in other words, that's what the air will feel like!

The nearest cooling center may be found by calling 311, or visiting the city's "Beat the Heat" website.

Long-term forecasts show that a brief cool down will happen by Saturday, however, there are even stronger signals that widespread summer heat will quickly move in again as we head toward the middle of July. In fact, it is the 3rd consecutive day Boston has hit 90 making it an official heat wave!

The hot weather is especially unsafe for young children, elderly people and people with health problems, it said.

Temperatures are expected to stay sultry next week, with temperatures in the high 80s. When the body heats too rapidly to cool itself properly, or when too much fluid or salt is lost through dehydration or sweating, body temperature rises and you or someone you care about may experience a heat-related illness.

For Monday and Tuesday, the heat index could break 100 degrees. Heat is the deadliest weather hazard each and every year, so it is important to take extra precautions and frequently check on children and the elderly.

Consecutive days of unsafe heat and humidity will bring an increased risk for heat-related illness.

An isolated evening thunderstorm is possible, but there is a better opportunity for stray storms overnight on Friday.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, vomiting, cold/pale/clammy skin, heavy sweating, fast and weak pulse, and weakness or fainting. If a victim is continuously vomiting or loses consciousness, call 911 or your local emergency number immediately.

The NWS recommends anyone who will be outside should remain hydrated, limit strenuous outdoor activities, and wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.
