Most intense heat to peak ahead of July 4th in northeastern US

United States

Surging heat and humidity combined with light winds will create a dangerous heat wave in the northeastern United States, which is forecast to be at its peak this weekend into early next week.

However, even during and after Independence Day, hot and humid weather will roll on.

Daytime temperatures will surge into the 90s F and AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures are projected to top 100 in the northeastern United States during the afternoon hours from Saturday through Monday.

While record temperatures are in the upper 90s to near 100 this time of the year, a few locations may still flirt with record highs, such as across New York state, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
