Holiday heat wave predicted to hit Maine

Dangerous, prolonged heat expected in Kansas City metro area into the weekend | The Kansas City Star

But, the heat returns quickly with Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday closing in on 90°.

Sunday morning will be dry but temperatures will warm up fast but that won't be hard since our low Sunday morning will only be 75. As hot as it was, there were no records tied or broken.

An excessive heat warning is issued when the combination of heat and humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 105 degrees or greater.

The heat and humidity will create uncomfortable conditions, especially today. In fact, we beat the previous wettest June by over three inches thanks to the torrential rain last Friday.

Mayor Lovely Warren has initiated a Cool Sweep Heat Emergency operation in anticipation of forecasted temperatures exceeding 90 degrees.

In order to stay safe we will need to ensure a few things: make sure you are hydrated with water and/or electrolyte replacement beverages.

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

SUNDAY | Very hot and sticky!

Although the excessive heat warning is only in effect Sunday and Monday, the heat wave is forecast to continue through the Independence Day holiday and beyond.

There were few power outages in the city as of Saturday morning, but power issues care more likely during heat waves. Heat and humidity are still the name of the game with temperatures in the low to mid 90s. If you must be outside during the late-morning/afternoon, stay out of the sun as much as possible, seek shade and drink plenty of water.

Sunday will be mostly sunny, but there will be an increase in the amount of haze.

Saturday will see afternoon highs in the lower to mid 90s, with temperatures slow to fall in the evening and unlikely to drop below 90 degrees, according to the NWS. Some of these storms could produce damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rain.

Most of July's first week will be hotter than normal.
