  • 'Extreme, dangerous' heat to continue this week, meteorologists say

It is against the law to leave a pet in a auto when the temp is above 78 degrees, according to the Cook County animal control department. Although we will see some occasional dips in the daily temperatures, the trend shows longer periods of highs in the 90s locking in frequently.

"Heat indices will remain in the 90s, not dropping below nearly 100 until almost midnight", he said.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for all of MA except the Cape and Islands on Tuesday.

The heat advisory is in effect noon to 10 p.m. today, as heat index values are expected to exceed 100 to 104 degrees midday into the evening. And there is no immediate reprieve from the heavy heat and humidity. "Intake of alcoholic beverages should be limited, especially when there is no means to keep cool, such as in air conditioning", said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.


In Chicago, where heat indexes were forecast to hit as high as 110 degrees, city workers on Saturday had to hose down a bridge because the extreme heat could cause the steel to expand.

The brutal combination of heat and humidity will continue for several more days. The National Weather Service and AccuWeather both are predicting a chance of showers and thunderstorms sometime after 2 p.m. Wednesday. A weak boundary will be settling into southern New England from the north.

Temperatures Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Hartford, Conn., and Albany, N.Y., have been about 20 degrees above average for four days. Los Angeles is expected to reach 101 degrees on Friday while Las Vegas is forecast to reach 112 degrees.

Priante said Lehigh Valley residents likely won't feel any real relief until a minimum of Wednesday, July 4 for Independence Day. Highs could range anywhere from the mid 80s to low 90s. "This is the peak of summer - the hottest time of the year". "It usually doesn't affect that much of the country at the same time", he said.
