'Nasty' heat wave ahead for region

'Nasty' heat wave ahead for region

The heat advisory and warning for the rest of the viewing area will expire at 10 p.m. Saturday night. The weather service says heat stress and heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for the elderly and those sensitive to heat.

If temperature forecasts hold, New York City could blow past that and see 90 degree temperatures through Thursday, although the temperatures are projected to be in the low 90s, unlike Sunday. As of Sunday night, the forecast high for Friday is 88.

Other areas may still feel like they're at or above 100 degrees because of the heat index, which indicates what the temperature feels like.

Several counties in the Triangle were under a heat advisory for much of Saturday because the high temperature in the mid-90s will feel much hotter when you factor in the humidity. Drink plenty of water and have places to go where you can cool off, preferably somewhere with A/C. Air-conditioning will be the best resource to stay cool tomorrow and Sunday. Heat index values as high as 99.

Friday is expected to mark the start with temperatures expected to climb into the low 90s.

Additionally, storms will move slowly due to the major ridge of high pressure bringing the heat wave to the east. Slow-moving thunderstorms will cause possible flash flooding.

Denver tied its record-high temperature Thursday, reaching 105 degrees. There may be a few showers into Northern and Western Maine.

"We'll be looking if a couple areas get into the upper 80s and break it", Priante said.

Slightly cooler conditions are expected on Monday as a backdoor cold front approaches from the northeast. If you have an air conditioner, it will be doing lots of work in the coming days.

SATURDAY: Mostly sunny, with a high near 85.

The risk of thunderstorms on Monday is low, however there is a slight chance on Tuesday.
