Heat index expected to be near 100 Sunday, NWS cautions

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

This is the warmest heat wave of the year, placing over 80 million under heat advisories this Saturday.

With all the heat and humidity destabilizing the atmosphere, strong to severe storms are definitely possible and all of southeast Wisconsin has been placed in the slight risk for severe weather.

Drink fluids, particularly water, even if you do not feel thirsty. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles, in which authorities said auto interiors can reach lethal temperatures within minutes. Chicago residents can also call 311 for information about the city's cooling centers or to request a well-being check for elderly friends or relatives.

Hope everyone is staying cool for the start of the weekend as the long advertised high heat is underway across the region.
