Joe’s Weather World The 5 day heat wave starts

"There will be almost no relief at night with overnight low temperatures in the upper 70s and 80s".

Heat indices, too, will "top 100 and approach 100 degrees or higher", the federal weather agency added. Know your local weather, temperature and heat index forecasts.

Temperatures will be in the mid-90s this weekend, however, the heat index will be as high as 105. Another stormy day is likely for Thursday!

The National Weather Service (NWS) this week warned a "scorching heatwave" is expected to affect roughly two-thirds of the nation starting Wednesday and continuing through the weekend. The highest values are expected to occur across north central Kansas. For this reason, the study considers the combined effect of humidity and temperature, also known as "feels like" temperature, to determine the thresholds for measurable extreme heat.

Rose: New majors schedule is 'too condensed'
I feel like sometimes if you come in absolutely pure a week or two ahead of time, it can be tricky to keep it going for so long. I'm not experienced enough to really make that judgment but I think the environment helps, no doubt.

State crews will be monitoring the conditions and can make repairs as quickly as possible. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.

Easton Mayor Sal Panto Jr. on Wednesday announced cooling centers will be open noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday the Easton Phillipsburg & Vicinity YMCA, 1225 W. Lafayette St.; the Easton Boys and Girls Club, 210 Jones Houston Way; Easton Area Neighborhood Center, 902 Philadelphia Road; and the Easton Area Community Center, 901 Washington St.

Those suffering from a heat-related illness may experience nausea and vomiting, and dizziness, a rapid heartbeat, and trouble breathing, among other symptoms. "Heat stroke is an emergency, call 911". The NWS offers tips on how to beat the heat and stay cool, as well as how to respond to a heatwave.

"Plan to spend more time in air conditioned or well-ventilated places", the NWS advises.
