Warm and humid weather is expected on the Fourth of July as well.

Almost 60 million people across the nation's midsection are under some type of heat watch, warning or advisory from the National Weather Service as the worst heat wave of 2018 arrives.

Unfortunately, Friday and Saturday are expected to be almost as hot, with highs in the mid to upper 90s. "But the air mass is a little warmer today, pumping temperatures a little higher today than yesterday".

Tuesday's record high temperature is 100 degrees, set in 1966.

Keep in mind to take those heat related precautions.

The temperature will stay over 90 degrees through the July 4 holiday across the Northeast. The storm chance Saturday night looks to be the only chance for rain and there still remains uncertainty on exact details such as timing and how much rain will fall.

While Friday and Saturday will be sweltering, Sunday is looking to be the hottest day, with heat indices over 100 degrees. It is best to avoid extended amounts of time in the sun from the late morning to early evening. Canadian high pressure and a dip in the jet stream should then build in for the remainder of next weekend, bringing a return to more tolerable high temperatures in the upper 80s and lowering humidity values.

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