BP: Widespread, dangerous heat wave to expand across much of the U.S.


National Weather Service high temperature map for the U.S. on Thursday July 18

A stifling heat wave has begun to take shape across large portions of the U.S., with millions likely to see temperature creep toward the century mark, along with even higher heat indices by this weekend.

The heat wave is already generating excessive heat watches in the central U.S., and by Wednesday, July 17, the national weather map is likely to feature a blanket of heat advisories from the National Weather Service. The combination of sultry dew points and scorching air temperatures approaching the century mark will help make this event a dangerous one from a public health perspective.
