First Alert Forecast: Extreme heat to last all week

The summer heat and dry weather will continue for your holiday weekend.

TOLEDO, Ohio — After a sunny and hot Fourth of July, a few isolated sprinkles could develop southwest of Toledo, mainly toward Defiance, Lima, and Ottawa.

Most locations will remain dry and clear through the holiday weekend.

Sunday will look and feel similar to the Fourth.

Despite temperatures well into the 90s, a pleasant northeasterly breeze off the lake will keep humidity tolerable.

Next week, this long-lasting heat wave will intensify as humidity builds. As dew points soar to the upper-60s and low-70s and temperatures climb to the upper-90s, the summer heat will become more dangerous, particularly to elderly individuals and those with medical conditions.

First Alert Days remain in effect for Monday through Thursday due to the hazardous impacts of this heat wave.

Next weekend will provide a bit of relief from the heat, but temperatures will remain well above-average for the rest of the First Alert 10 day forecast.

Another important reminder as temperatures heat up: if it's hot outside, it's even hotter inside your car. Watch out especially for children, pets and the elderly during this time!
