Possibly Severe Storms to Move Into Southwest Central Iowa WHO-HD

There is also an 80 percent chance of thunderstorms in Grand Rapids on Sunday evening. Some residents are urged to limit their time outdoors including young children, the elderly and those with respiratory problems.

Because of anticipated unsafe and prolonged heat, the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill has issued an excessive heat warning for the Kansas City metro as well as surrounding areas along and south of the Missouri River.

Sunday reached 90 degrees at 10 a.m., according to Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The heat index should approach 100 on Friday afternoon and could get as high at 110 on Saturday afternoon.

As of Friday morning, Sunday looks like it will bring the most risky conditions, as the high of 98 degrees should officially mark our first heat wave of 2018. Numbers may be slightly cooler along Lake Erie. "It will be warm and humid with a high into the upper 80s", he said.

First, make sure to drink lots of water and staying hydrated. The state recommends staying inside in air-conditioned buildings and avoiding strenuous activity to decrease the risk of heat-related illness.

Make use of those air conditioners! Heat stroke is an emergency and in cases of heat stroke call 9-1-1. This heat can create health problems for some, so here are some tips that can be used to look out for during the first official heat wave of the summer.

Temperatures will rise fast today with 90 degree temperatures beginning around lunchtime.

TUESDAY: Hazy, hot and humid.

Though the temperatures over the Northeast will not reach the extreme highs of the Midwest and Central Plains, the duration of the heat will be significantly longer. Winds will be light from the southwest.

Tonight - Mostly clear, with a low around 71. Sunshine will also be abundant with breezy winds out of the southwest at 5 to 15 miles per hour.

Sunday - Sunny, with a high near 94. There will be a "slight" drop in the heat index Monday, but it will still feel like it is in the middle 90°s. Winds will be stronger than yesterday gusting around 30 miles per hour. Overnight, lows in the 80s won't cool down anything.
