Ismael LynchJul 02, 2018

The reported temperature at Logan Airport as of 1 p.m. Sunday was 91 degrees and the heat index was 98, the weather service said.

Saturday will see afternoon highs in the lower to mid 90s, with temperatures slow to fall in the evening and unlikely to drop below 90 degrees, according to the NWS.

The National Weather Service defines a heat wave as three or more consecutive days with temperatures reaching 90 degrees or higher. The heat index should approach 100 on Friday afternoon and could get as high at 110 on Saturday afternoon. If you don't have air conditioning, visit cool areas like a recreation center or library. Drink plenty of fluids.stay in an air-conditioned room.stay out of the sun.and check up on relatives and neighbors.

A unsafe heat wave will have more than half of the country sweltering over the Fourth of July holiday. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Watch for sweating, weakness, cold or clammy skin, nausea or vomiting and fainting for heat exhaustion and body temperatures exceeding 103 with hot, red and dry skin and a rapid pulse for the potentially-fatal heat stroke. Numbers may be slightly cooler along Lake Erie. Here's a look at heat index values for Friday and Saturday.

Consecutive days of risky heat and humidity will bring an increased risk for heat-related illness.

This hot & humid pattern will continue right through the Independence Day holiday and the rest of the work week so please do your best to stay cool!

HEAT CRAMPS: Painful spasms usually in the muscles of legs and abdomen with heavy sweating. Call 911 if they refuse water, vomit or begin to lose consciousness.

Heat stroke is a medical emergency and warrants calling 911, according to officials.

Also, a must: wearing light-colored, light-weight clothing and drinking plenty of water. Also, make sure that any outside activity is not too taxing and to take frequent breaks in the shade or air condition if being outside is necessary.
