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

NAM model predicts a heat index of 100 Sunday at 2 p.m

The heat advisory and warning for the rest of the viewing area will expire at 10 p.m. Saturday night.

An Excessive Heat Watch is in effect all day Monday.

Any cold front will provide only very limited relief, and highs are expected to remain around or above 90 degrees through next Friday, after which point the heat wave may end by next weekend as highs ease a little lower still into the upper 80s. The weather service says heat stress and heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for the elderly and those sensitive to heat.

On Sunday, temperatures in parts of NY and CT, were forecast to hit up to 100 degrees but appeared to settle in the high and mid-90s by the late afternoon. The heat will be more than enough to cause problems, but the humidity will be high as well.

An Excessive Heat Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service for all of southeastern MI.

The sun peaks around the Washington Monument as geese float down the Potomac River at daybreak Sunday, July 1, 2018, in Washington on what is expected to be another hot day in the Nation's Capital.

The highest heat index values are expected across Northwest Ohio today. Heat index values will soar into the 100s, with localized 105-degree heat-index values in urban areas of the Northeast.

Never leave children, pets or disabled adults in a parked vehicle.

As of Friday, the National Weather Service's forecasts for Monday and Tuesday called for high temperatures of 90 on Monday and 89 on Tuesday. As quick as these storms came in, they moved out and the clearing began.

The heat will stick around during the first week of July.

Syracuse, Buffalo and cities in the NY and Vermont area could experience record heat on Sunday.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, vomiting, cold/pale/clammy skin, heavy sweating, fast and weak pulse, and weakness or fainting.

Apply cool, wet cloths to as much of victim's body as possible. Not only that, but it will be important to put on sunscreen if you plan on spending time outdoors and be sure to reapply it often.

Heat stroke is a medical emergency and warrants calling 911, according to officials. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
