Eighteen states from New Mexico to MI have issued heat advisories, warnings or watches, making up a heat dome that is descending on 60 million people.

A heat advisory remains in effect until noon today through late Monday evening.

Saturday and Sunday will be hot and humid with highs in the low 90s on both days, but the humidity will make it feel more like 100 degrees at times. The good news is that Thursday will be the hottest day, according to the Weather Service. The humidity will be extremely high as well, leading to risky conditions thanks to heat index values over the weekend that will feel like 100-105 at times.

Extreme heat can cause illness and death among the at-risk population who can't stay cool.

- The National Weather Service has extended a Heat Advisory for Ohio County until 7 p.m. Sunday night.

For DC, a Heat Emergency Plan is now in effect through July 2, as temperatures and heat index values will soar into mid-to-upper 90s. Drink plenty of water and have places to go where you can cool off, preferably somewhere with A/C. Air-conditioning will be the best resource to stay cool tomorrow and Sunday.

The highest heat index values are expected across Northwest Ohio today.

The heat will stick around during the first week of July. "It looks like the hottest day will be Sunday", said Craig Evanego, meteorologist with the National Weather Service's State College office. Your body needs water to keep cool. Call 911 or get the victim to a hospital immediately.

Current temperatures sit around the 90 across the region before factoring in the heat.
