Heat advisory issued for today

NAM model predicts a heat index of 100 Sunday at 2 p.m

The takeaway: it will be hot, humid, and the showers will not impact everyone.

Temperatures will remain at 90, or very close to it, through Thursday, said another meteorologist, Benjamin Sipprell.

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

The NWS expects the high temperature in Jefferson to reach 91 degrees today and 93 degrees on Sunday. As hot as it was, there were no records tied or broken.

Temperatures will be a touch cooler in the Midwest, but heat index levels will still hover around 100 degrees from Texas to MI. With all of the heat and humidity, it's not out of the question for some of the storms to be on the strong side.

SATURDAY: Hot and Humid, Chance for a late thunderstorm.

Saturday's temps soared into the mid 90's with a decent amount of humidity.

Sea surface temperatures have really warmed up over the past couple of weeks and are now in the 69-70 degree range. High pressure will continue to build in and stick around through the middle part of the week. There could be some patchy valley fog but nothing that widespread or dense. Although we will see some occasional dips in the daily temperatures, the trend shows longer periods of highs in the 90s locking in frequently.

Mattis arrives in China; NKorea to be key topic of meetings
Dow Jones Industrial Average if the president keeps raising the tensions with China over bilateral trade issues. Christensen, former deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs from 2007 to 2008.

An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect for all of Mid-Michigan through Sunday afternoon. Mostly sunny, with a high near 90. All in all, it's likely we don't get relief from this heat and humidity until next Saturday.

This weekend is so hot, that is can be downright risky; otherwise its great to enjoy water activities. Keep in mind to take it easy out there! wear light clothing.

The National Weather Service is forecasting an 81 degree high for Tuesday and an 88 degree high for Independence Day.

The high temperature Sunday is forecast to be 98 degrees while the city will feel around 105.

The heat will expand toward the Northeast on Saturday with temperatures in the 90s and heat index values into the upper 90s.

The main threats with any severe storms would be damaging wind with some hail and heavy rain also possible. While mother nature may have her own fireworks display, it's still nothing to cancel the outdoor plans over at this point, just have a backup plan. Pontiac, Illinois, hit a heat index of 115 degrees.

Have a great and safe rest of the weekend and stay cool!
