Heat Advisory in effect until Thursday night

Weather Forecast
National Weather Service
Expect a hot and sultry Independence Day. Heat index values will reach 100 to 107 degrees today, and a Heat Advisory is in effect for the entire region. Isolated PM thunderstorms will provide limited relief from the heat, but it will be dry everywhere by dusk for firework activities.

Dangerous temperatures and high humidity will cover the region

The National Weather Service says the region is in for a dangerous heat wave again this week - and they're warning people to be careful if they have plans to be outside.

A Heat Advisory is in effect through Thursday at 9:00pm, with temperatures expected to soar into the upper 90's and heat index values well above 100 degrees.

Among the recommendations, experts say children and pets should never be left alone in cars... people are encouraged to check on their elderly family members and neighbors, and if you need to do work outside - try to do it in the early morning or evening hours, outside of the hottest part of the day.

The Weather Service forecast includes a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms each day - but meteorologists say those storms won't be enough to break the heat long-term.
