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

We will return to more typical July weather on this 4th of July! Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be from 80-85 with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.

Residents of Centre County continued to feel the heat, now in its fourth day, at least through Tuesday. Most of these will have dissipated by the time the cold front traverses southern New England by Tuesday evening, but an isolated thunderstorm can not be ruled out north and west of the city during the evening commute. A stray storm is possible but severe weather is not expected.

Overnight temperatures on the weekend will not back down much, he said. Look for partly sunny skies and a high around 91. At this point Wednesday is looking mainly dry, but a drier afternoon will lead to a hotter afternoon.

An excessive heat warning, issued when the heat and humidity make it feel like it's 105 degrees or higher, will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Monday.

Almost 100 million people will see temperatures climb above 95 degrees Fahrenheit this week, with a majority of those residing in the eastern third of the nation.

Remarkably, in a total of 229 for two, Zimbabwe bowler Tendai Chisoro conceded just 19 runs from his four overs. The 31-year-old just needed 50 balls to bring up his hundred, his second in T20Is.

It's going to be a steam bath Wednesday with a hazy start and spotty showers and storms in the afternoon and evening. The biggest chance for rain will be Friday night to Saturday morning.

Monday will bring little relief with temperatures expected to hit a high of 98 degrees, according to the weather service.

Expect a few clouds around Friday, but the humidity will be dropping by the hour. Highs will drop into the low 80s.

"Right now, there's still a couple clouds around", he said Sunday afternoon. Winds will also pick up this weekend, NE at 10 to 20 with higher gusts. Cooler sea breezes will develop on the shore each day with highs in the 80s. Lows will be in the 70s. In fact, Heat Advisories and an Air Quality Alert have again been posted for today as we're experiencing similar conditions to what we experienced Yesterday.
