WATCH: Dangerous heat to start the weekend


Widespread heat warnings are in effect until Saturday evening

An Excessive Heat Warning has been issued for Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties from Friday afternoon until 8 p.m. Saturday.
A Heat Advisory has been issued for Lawrence and Mercer counties until 8 p.m. Saturday.

It will be dangerously hot this Friday and Saturday, with temperatures in the low- to mid-90s with heat indexes upward of 100 during the hottest part of the day.

Overnight, there’s not much relief. Temperatures only fall into the mid-70s, and dewpoints stay high as well.

An isolated storm is possible this afternoon, but a better threat for storms is this evening with a passing line of active weather. An isolated strong to severe storm is not ruled out. Our next best threat for rain will be Sunday with scattered showers and storms.

Sunday, temperatures will be near 90, but they drop off into next week. Temperatures will be in the low-80s, even mid-70s, for highs and partly to mostly sunny skies.
