A U.S. heat wave will peak in the Midwest this weekend and spread to the Northeast, bringing record-high temperatures from Denver to Chicago, Boston, and even into the Canadian cities of Toronto and Montreal. 

Denver saw a record-high temperature of 105 degrees on Thursday afternoon, and real-feel temperatures from 95 to 110 are expected to spread across Missouri, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and other states up and down the U.S. East Coast, AccuWeather reported.

Heat advisories, watches, and warnings were issued in 18 states from New Mexico to Michigan on Friday, with cooling stations being urged in urban areas of major cities such as Chicago and Detroit, USA Today reported.

Those working outside are being cautioned to drink plenty of fluids, wear light-colored, lightweight clothing, and take frequent breaks in the shade.

Syracuse, New York, may reach 100 degrees on Sunday, which has only happened 10 times since 1902, USA Today reported.

Air quality in many of the affected areas is expected to be poor. 

Temperatures are expected to moderate in the Midwest by the Fourth of July after thunderstorms move through the area, but in the Northeast, temperatures in the 90s are still expected for the holiday, AccuWeather reported. 

In areas that have had frequent heavy downpours recently, temperatures may be a bit lower, but these areas may have oppressive humidity along with the still-intense heat, AccuWeather reported. 

The heat can also impact motorists, who are advised to drive slower on the highway and keep tires properly inflated so they don’t blow out in the extreme heat.

“The dog days of summer are setting in, perhaps a little ahead of schedule,” AccuWeather long range meteorologist Max Vido said.
