As hot as it was, there were no records tied or broken. The heat index is expected to climb to more than 100 degrees Sunday.
SUNDAY: Extreme heat and humidity.
FRIDAY: There will be a 60 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms. "The big warmup will come right after the Fourth of July, with Friday and Saturday being the warmest days".
Do not leave a pet in a auto: Even with windows rolled down, temperatures inside a vehicle can still be 15 degrees higher than outside, experts say. High pressure is centered just to our east.
Clouds clear and so does the patchy fog. Although we will see some occasional dips in the daily temperatures, the trend shows longer periods of highs in the 90s locking in frequently.
There is an 'excessive heat warning' from noon on Sunday until 10pm on Monday.
The maximum heat index values forecast for Sunday.
One difference from Saturday, winds will be a bit more brisk at times, gusting to near 20 miles per hour out of the south. Most places haven't hit 100 degrees officially since the summers of 2011 and 2012, so triple-digit heat is not something that happens every year in our area. All in all, it's likely we don't get relief from this heat and humidity until next Saturday.
"The hot weather will continue into the week and we urge people to keep safe", said York City Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Esposito said.
The NWS recommends anyone who will be outside should remain hydrated, limit strenuous outdoor activities, and wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. Also, don't forget to check on the young, the elderly, and pets, all groups more susceptible to the excessive heat.
But until then most of ME, with the exception of coastal areas, should expect to endure extremely hot weather. Rain is not in the weekend forecast, and a small chance of storms exists on Monday and Tuesday.
Another round of hot air will move into the central US on the Fourth of July.
