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

Priante said Lehigh Valley residents likely won't feel any real relief until a minimum of Wednesday, July 4 for Independence Day. Temperatures will continue to climb into the 90s in much of Upstate through Thursday. We will see a mix of sun and clouds today with scattered showers. Right now, no severe weather is expected, but we want everyone to the Local4Casters App with Radar nearby.

Temperatures will return to the mid 70s tonight.

On Tuesday, a high near 90 is forecasted with partly sunny skies.

"It will go from hot and humid to a little bit cooler, a little bit drier, or more seasonal, somewhere in the low 80s".

There may be scattered clouds this afternoon, but abundant sunshine will effectively add another 5 to 15-degrees to the heat indices, making conditions extremely risky.

You'll also need to be on the lookout for a few more spotty storms this afternoon. The biggest chance for rain will be Friday night to Saturday morning.

Virginia Beach will be the warmest, with temperatures reaching the high 80s.

Barlow added increased heat and humidity will boost the chance of thunderstorms late Wednesday.

It will be cooler & less humid for the weekend with a nice northeast to east wind. The overall rain chance is 60 percent. The record high for Friday in Cleveland was 94, which was set in 2012, he said, but stressed there is no trend toward hotter weather this time of year, as it fluctuates from season to season.

We are watching an area of cloudiness and showers a few hundred miles southeast of Bermuda. It is now rather disorganized, but conditions "could become more conducive for a low-pressure system to form by late this week in the area southwest of Bermuda", the hurricane center said in its Tropical Weather Outlook.

But until then most of ME, with the exception of coastal areas, should expect to endure extremely hot weather. Listen to your body, if you start feeling signs of heat stroke or heat exhaustion take action, don't wait.
