Serious heat wave to scorch the East next week. Maps show areas at risk.

The heat wave could produce dangerously high temperatures over a large area for an extended period

The eastern half of the United States faces an intense heat wave starting late this week and peaking next week that could produce dangerously high temperatures over a large area for an extended period. It could threaten records and place vulnerable groups of people at risk from heat-related illnesses.

Over the weekend, widespread highs in the mid-90s to around 100 - some 10 to 20 degrees above normal - will spread across the southern Plains, South and Midwest. By Monday, the heat will swell into the Ohio Valley before reaching the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast shortly thereafter.

For much of next week, a punishing combination of heat and humidity will remain lodged over the East - although some relief may arrive in the Upper Midwest during its second half.
