DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A heat wave is making it's way into the Miami Valley where we'll see temperatures in the 90's and heat indices near 100 before the end of the week.
Storm Team 2 Meteorologist Jamie Jarosik says we can expect highs in the lower 90s, "but with extremely high dew points, it will feel even hotter!"
We saw 19 days above 90 degrees last July, including a 102 degree day.
We average 4.1 days above 90 degrees in the month of July. We've seen 90 degrees twice already at the James M. Cox Dayton International Airport this month and Jamie's forecast calls for 5 days above 90 before the end of the week.
Pay careful attention to children, the elderly and pets as temperatures climb.
You'll want to check your child's safety seat, especially the metal buckles, before putting your child inside. Be sure not to let your children play in the car; keep the doors locked and the trunk closed to prevent them from crawling in.
