Get ready to bake, as heat wave settles upon our region

Get ready to bake, as heat wave settles upon our region

Parts of New Hampshire are under heat advisories Sunday and Monday.

Temperatures in the 90s and high humidity are expected to push the heat index to between 104 and 108 degrees, according the weather service's Wakefield office.

The combination of high temperatures and humidity may make people uncomfortable in the next few days, according to the National Weather Service.

Heat indices that high can cause heat stroke and death for anyone outside too long.

"Numerous heat advisories and excessive heat warnings are in effect from near Memphis to MI, and also for the mid-Atlantic to northern New England", the NWS said.

Excessive Heat Warning is still in effect through 8 PM Sunday for the northern third of Indiana. The heat index values could surpass 100 degrees from Washington, D.C., to New York, Connecticut and Vermont. Heat index values will soar into the 100s, with localized 105-degree heat-index values in urban areas of the Northeast. Also, young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstance because the interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. Near the lake, temperatures will stay in the 70s.


A Heat Advisory means a period of hot temperatures is expected.

During a Cool Sweep heat emergency, R-Centers and libraries are opened to serve as cooling centers, hydrants are opened, and hours at Genesee Valley Park Pool and Durand Eastman Beach are extended.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, vomiting, cold/pale/clammy skin, heavy sweating, fast and weak pulse, and weakness or fainting.

"If you bring enough water and you just try to keep moving and keep the breeze going you can stay cool and have a good time", one man told FOX29.

Current temperatures sit around the 90 across the region before factoring in the heat. As far as precipitation goes, an isolated storm possible Tuesday afternoon and a better chance on the 4th...right now, it looks like much of those (if they even develop) should be out of here in time for the fireworks Wednesday night. This is unsafe for anyone working outside and for those without air conditioning, it can be life-threatening.

The NWS recommends anyone who will be outside should remain hydrated, limit strenuous outdoor activities, and wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.
