Much of the United States will experience a dangerous heat wave that will stretch from Maine to Arizona in the coming days.

Cities including Chicago, Detroit, Kansas City, Nashville, Philadelphia, New York, and Washington, D.C. could experience high temperatures in excess of 100° F (38° C).

The cause of the unusually hot weather is a large area of high pressure known as a “heat dome” in which affected areas will experience sunny storm-free skies. The heat wave will reach its peak in the first four days of July during which half the country should expect temperatures of at least 90° F (32° C).

The forecast for New York City on Sunday calls for sunny skies and a high temperature of 98° F (37° C) with an expected humidity of 52% and light winds gusting to 8 mph (13 km/h). The expected high in Philadelphia on Sunday will be 99° F (37° C) and Washington, D.C. will see a high of 96° F (36° C).

For the Fourth of July holiday, New York City should see a high of 86° F (30° C) and partly cloudy skies while Philadelphia will see a high of 91° F (33° C) and isolated thunderstorms.
