  • The Weather Channel stated that strong upper-level ridges of high pressures- or'heat domes- contribute to the hot temperatures that will rack the US this weekend

The early summer heat was also producing other negative side effects, such as a tornado warning issued late Saturday night for northern New Hampshire and a section of Oxford County near Mexico, Bethel and West Paris. Chicago's Midway International Airport hit a heat index of 110 degrees.

- The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the DC metro area from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, as heat index values could reach over 100 degrees.

A true signature of a heat wave is the little relief provided at night.

Do not leave a pet in a auto: Even with windows rolled down, temperatures inside a vehicle can still be 15 degrees higher than outside, experts say.

Sunday reached 90 degrees at 10 a.m., according to Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Low temperatures in some of the major metro areas will struggle to dip below 80 degrees during their peak heat this weekend.

In parts of OH, where temperatures were expected to reach the mid-90s, July 4th firework shows planned for Saturday were canceled because of the extreme heat. Heat index values are expected to be near 100, the NWS said.

In some areas, 90-degree temperatures could remain lingering into Friday, he said, noting Saturday then would be the best bet.

The heat lingers through the holiday. Some storms could strong to severe, with heavy rain, gusty winds and small hail possible.

More storms will fire up this afternoon from IL to MI - including in Chicago and Milwaukee - with damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes possible.

High pressure sitting atop the region tonight will lead to clear skies and light winds.

The Spring fire in Costilla County, Colorado, has burned 28,648 acres and is zero percent contained.

Saturday: Partly sunny with a high near 93.

Monday is a much more comfortable day with dew points in the low 60s and temperatures in the low 80s.
