Excessive heat warning for the area starting today

On Friday, temperatures are expected to soar with highs well into the 90s and possible near triple digits for areas east of the Blue Ridge.

More than 200 million people in the central and eastern U.S.in total will experience temperatures in the mid to high 90s with little to no relief overnight as at least 29 states from Arizona to NY seeing an index of over 100, AccuWeather reported.

The extreme heat warnings/watches begin noon today and continue through Sunday evening, so if you could, be sure to limit your time outside, but if you have to be outdoors, be sure to take plenty of water breaks and seek the shade to cool your body off.

Along the northern periphery of the heat dome will be what meteorologists refer to as the "Ring of Fire". The National Weather Service website has an hourly forecast you can check if you want to see when the heat will be the worst.

Also, do not leave pets or young children inside vehicles as interiors can reach lethal temperatures very quickly.

SUNDAY: Not almost as warm with thunderstorms on and off throughout the day.

The heat index will potentially reach 110 to 115 degrees each afternoon and remain in the 80s each night, forecasters said, "greatly increasing the potential for heat-related illnesses". You will need to drink more fluids than your thirst level indicates.

Wear lightweight, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing.

-Stay cool indoors. The most efficient way to beat the heat is to stay in an air-conditioned area. Avoid alcoholic beverages and liquids high in sugar or caffeine. Even with the windows cracked open, interior temperatures can rise nearly 20 degrees within 10 minutes. Try to rest often in shady areas so your body temperature will have a chance to recover.

It seems likely July will also be a record hot month, according to Berkeley Earth, the California nonprofit which focuses its research on land temperature data analysis for climate science. Heat stress and poor air quality can exacerbate other illnesses and even lead to heat stroke, which can be deadly. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared a local emergency due to the extreme heat.

In several cities, buildings are being offered as cooling centers and residents are being asked to check on family and neighbors.

And while this heat wave will break by early next week, it won't be the last.
