Extreme temperatures are moving into the Ohio Valley Saturday as the heat wave continues.
The National Weather Service (NWS) says temperatures are expected to climb throughout the day to a stifling 103 degrees.
At about 10 a.m. thermometers read 86 degrees in Wheeling, but it felt like 92.
A heat advisory has been issued for Ohio, in effect from noon until 8 p.m. Saturday.
Officials at the NWS anticipate record breaking heat and the long duration of the heat wave can make it particularly dangerous.
Heat exhaustion and other heat related illnesses are possible, especially for the elderly and young children who are highly susceptible.
The intense weather could cause a problem for some in the Ohio Valley who are still without power after a storm last week. While AEP Ohio and other companies have restored power to a majority of their customers, some areas, like in Monroe County, Ohio, must fight off the heat without the help of air conditioning.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration advises rescheduling strenuous activities to early morning or evening and taking rest breaks in shade or air conditioned areas.
