Much of Southeast Ohio is under a heat advisory Friday as heat indices are expected between 100 and 105 degrees.
The forecasts mark the second day of sweltering heat and little relief is in sight.
The National Weather Services predicts weekend temperatures in the mid-90s and triple digits.
The area's heat advisory is in effect beginning at 1 p.m. and lasting until 8 p.m.
The NWS reports such conditions could cause health-related problems and heat stroke, particularly as exposure to the weather increases.
Residents are recommended to stay inside, limit time outside and seek cool, dark areas.
