"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.
