Heat Wave Bakes Parts Of The Midwest And Northeast With Extreme Temperatures

'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

"The week will start out mild, with temperatures going up a degree or two each day", said James Brotherton, a weather service forecaster. Heat indices will approach 100 degrees for most inland towns yet again.

Phoenix is expected to climb to 115 degrees on Thursday. The best shot for showers and storms will be overnight Wednesday into Thursday.

"Heavy rainfall and gusty winds will be the main threat with any strong storm", the service said.

"Once we head into next week, temps will be a little bit cooler - (we'll) still be above normal, still see highs around 90 into mid-week", he said.

AccuWeather warns those in the Northeast may be particularly affected by the heat wave because this is the longest stretch of such high temperatures in the area since 2016 or longer.

"Relief is possible by the end of the week into the following weekend, " forecasters wrote. A spotty thunderstorm can't be ruled out later in the day or evening, especially in northern and western areas, but most areas will be dry for picnics and fireworks.

This evening temperatures drop back down in the 80s by 10pm however heat indices are still likely to be in the low 90s for many spots.

"Hot and humid conditions will continue across the region through most of this week, including the July 4th holiday as high pressure remains along the eastern seaboard, " forecasters wrote Monday.

Extremely hot and humid with hazy sunshine. We'll hold an isolated chance for rain through Friday morning, before much drier and cooler air moves in for the weekend.

The early summer heat was also producing other negative side effects, such as a tornado warning issued late Saturday night for northern New Hampshire and a section of Oxford County near Mexico, Bethel and West Paris.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with scattered showers developing by afternoon. While record temperatures are in the upper 90s to near 100 this time of the year, a few locations may still flirt with record highs.
