Relentless heat wave to bake the U.S. for "multiple weeks"

Heat wave to last weeks

A punishing and relentless heat wave is just getting underway in the South, with some spots forecast to  peak above 110 degrees starting this weekend. But the heat will not stay in the South; next week it is forecast to move north and east, spreading 100-degree temperatures across the Ohio Valley and into the Mid-Atlantic.

The National Weather Service is forecasting 75 or more record-high temperatures to be approached or broken from Friday to Tuesday alone, and that number is likely to grow significantly into next  week. Early next week a few cities in the Plains states may even flirt with their all-time record highs. However, when all is said and done, the bigger story will likely be how long this heat wave lasts.

Jeff Masters, Ph.D., founder of the popular site Weather Underground and a regular contributor to Yale Climate Connections, says what concerns him most is the prolonged exposure to the heat. "The heat wave will be very long-lived, lasting multiple weeks in some areas with only a few days of near-normal temperatures during that span. This will increase the odds of heat illness and heat-related deaths."
