Extreme heat expected today and tomorrow with dangerously high heat indices

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

Although the high temperatures in the mid- and upper 90s were not records for the date, extreme heat indexes as high as around 110 were observed in many spots, including Washington. Some downpours are possible.

Tonight most of our showers and storms should dissipate after 8pm.

Temperatures there have been in the mid-90s since Sunday, and the heat will continue through Thursday, to highs around 93, before dropping back to average, or 77 degrees, on Friday. That is four degrees shy of Allentown's record high of 102 for July 2 set in 1966. A spotty thunderstorm can't be ruled out later in the day or evening, especially in northern and western areas, but most areas will be dry for picnics and fireworks. Los Angeles is expected to reach 101 degrees on Friday while Las Vegas is forecast to reach 112 degrees.

"The biggest heat will be away from the ocean, in the low 90s, maybe the mid-90s up around Lawrence and Lowell", Simpson said. There's no widespread or organized threat here, but any storm can be locally potent, with heavy rain and frequent lightning the main threats.

Bolton said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo should discuss the proposal when he visits North Korea. The president tweeted last month that there "was no longer a nuclear threat" posed by North Korea.

Storms are possible in the afternoon and evening hours, staying mainly west of I-81, said Storm Team 4 meteorologist Amelia Draper. Sunday will be the wettest day of the weekend as a trough of low pressure sends a cold front toward us. We can't rule out an isolated storm during the heat of the day, but the best rain chances hold off until after midnight, taking us into Thursday morning. Highs around 91. Wind SE 5-10 miles per hour. It will also be cooler, more seasonable with highs in the lower 80s! MONDAY: It's mostly sunny and warmer with a high of 88.

On Sunday, a 30-year-old man died after he collapsed on a mountain trail while running a race in Wilmington, New York, the Essex County coroner said.

There could be "limited relief" today in the form of thunderstorms, but they will be scattered and brief, the weather service said.
