Potentially Deadly Heat Wave Strikes Thursday

This image, from the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC), projects maximum temperatures for Thursday, where many cities are widely expected to break triple digits. While it says maximum temperatures, these could very well turn out to be the temperatures on Thursday. Among cities that could experience unusually intense heat are:

-Chicago, IL (100)
-Indianapolis, IN (100)

Those are just the cities that almost never reach 100. There are many cities that could flirt with 110, especially in Kansas.

In situations like this, ALWAYS carry a water bottle and do not perform high energy activities for an extended period of time (or at all, if possible), because the scope and intensity of this heat is not as frequent as you think.
