The National Weather Service said Sunday the "extensive heat wave" stretching from the Plains states to the East Coast is setting the stage for possible record high temperatures to be set through Monday.

"The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a unsafe situation in which heat illnesses are likely", the service said in a warning for Chicago, the third-largest city in the United States.

A heat wave is making for dangerously hot temperatures and thick humidity in Maryland, and the sweltering weather is expected to stick around through at least the Fourth of July.

Kennedy says the weather service could issue a heat advisory for Monday or Tuesday as the index could top 100 degrees.

Drink plenty of water, stay in the air-conditioning and out of the sun.

As the heat is expected to rise, people will be hitting local swimming areas, pools and splashpads to keep cool.

You hear us talk about the "heat index" a lot this time of year.What is that? Be sure to keep a close eye on children and pets during the heat wave, keeping them in the shade and well hydrated. The current expected high temperature is 98. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday, but that is a relative term.

The thermometer readings are in the 90s across the Midwest, but as any dog knows, when you add in the humidity it actually feels like 105 or even 110 degrees. Wednesday and Thursday will come down slightly to 92 degrees, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms both days.

The unsafe heat and humidity can also affect people who are accustomed to working in the heat. When there's extreme heat, the steel on moveable bridges like it expands, Mike Claffey with the Chicago Department of Transportation said. Heat stroke is an emergency - call 911.
