Heat warning extended until Sunday evening as scorching temperatures persist

Another day another heat advisory for parts of central Alabama. Wednesday's advisory will be in effect from noon until 7 p.m

A Heat Advisory is in effect until noon Sunday.

Sunday was the hottest day of the year so far and the high temperatures are expected to stick around through at least the 4th of July, forecasters said. Hot weather, especially long duration heat waves, is surprisingly high on the list of most unsafe types of weather in terms of injuries or deaths each year.

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

High heat and humidity is coming back strong again this weekend with heat index values near the triple digits.

Sunday reached 90 degrees at 10 a.m., according to Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

NOAA has issued an Excessive Heat Warning in effect beginning tomorrow, Sunday, July 1 at 6:00 am through Monday, July 2 at 6:00 am.

On July 4, heat will overtake a majority of the eastern USA with triple-digit heat index values across the entire central US and heat index values in the upper 90s across the East Coast. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles, in which authorities said auto interiors can reach lethal temperatures within minutes.

Temperatures are expected to stay sultry next week, with temperatures in the high 80s.

On Monday, expect more hot and sunny conditions with a high of 97 and a low of 74. Be sure to keep a close eye on children and pets during the heat wave, keeping them in the shade and well hydrated. Victims of this illness should be treated in the same ways as those with heat exhaustion but do not give fluids.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. It is best to avoid extended amounts of time in the sun from the late morning to early evening. Also, 911 should be immediately called, as heat stroke is a medical emergency.

Finally, consider wearing light-colored clothing to stay a bit cooler in the extreme heat or head to your neighborhood pool or down the shore to stay cooler by the water.
