‘Excessive’ heat warning continues through late Saturday for Chicago

The Weather Channel stated that strong upper-level ridges of high pressures- or'heat domes- contribute to the hot temperatures that will rack the US this weekend

An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect for all of Mid-Michigan through Sunday afternoon.

"Oppressive heat and humidity combined with ample sunshine, make for unsafe conditions", according to the National Weather Service's website, and people are advised to stay cool indoors and avoid strenuous activity outdoors amid the heat wave. Monday is expected to see the searing heat and high humidity continue, with temperatures again nearing 100 in New York's capital of Albany.

Gusty winds, low relative humidity and high heat will bring the next round of high fire conditions across parts of Northern California and Utah. Based on forecasts, another advisory is possible for Sunday, forecasters said. The heat index values could surpass 100 degrees from Washington, D.C., to New York, Connecticut and Vermont. Peak heat index values each day are likely to be near 100 through next Thursday.

"The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a unsafe situation in which heat illnesses are likely", the National Weather Service said.

People are urged to avoid spending too much time outdoors and to drink plenty of water. The heat will be more than enough to cause problems, but the humidity will be high as well.

Brilliant Cavani brace fires Uruguay into last eight
Defender Jose Gimenez is set for a return for Uruguay after missing the victory over Russian Federation with a back injury. He didn't manage to touch the ball a single time in Uruguay's box in the first half, such was its defensive tenacity.

Unsafe heat in the Midwest and Northeast is prompting multiple warnings and watches.

Though the temperatures over the Northeast will not reach the extreme highs of the Midwest and Central Plains, the duration of the heat will be significantly longer. We're starting off this morning in the upper 60s/low 70s with temperatures in the mid/upper 80s by Noon with highs temps topping out at 94°F.

There also may be a slight cool down in temperatures during the back half of next week, but overall not much relief.

A chance of a thunderstorm is expected sometime late Tuesday night into Wednesday, Simpson said. Highs will remain in the upper 80s to around 90.

Denver tied its record-high temperature Thursday, reaching 105 degrees.
