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.

In West Virginia, Kanawha County emergency officials want to make sure residents are ready for the swelter.
 
County homeland security and emergency management officials are conducting a news conference on Friday to provide the public with guidance on how to withstand the extraordinary hot, dry conditions expected this upcoming weekend.
 
Besides homeland security, public health officials and the ambulance authority will join in the news conference to provide the public with guidance on how to weather the extreme temperatures.
