Dangerously high temperatures continue to pose a threat across the United States, as forecasters predict that 85 percent of the nation could experience heat warnings throughout the weekend, according to reliable sources, Your Content has learned.

As of early Friday, over 210 million individuals have already encountered temperatures exceeding 90 degrees, and this number is expected to rise to approximately 275 million within the next week, as reported by the Weather Prediction Center.

This week alone, a staggering 60 different high temperature records have either been matched or surpassed, and there is a possibility of more records being broken in the upcoming days.

Moreover, the combination of humidity and heat may result in other extreme weather conditions. Officials are anticipating the arrival of “monsoonal moisture,” which could bring heavy rainfall to various areas in the southwest.

In the vicinity of New York City, temperatures are set to reach the 90s, falling just short of triple-digit records. However, due to the high moisture content in the air, the heat index is expected to make it feel well over 100 degrees.

Other cities such as Las Vegas (115 degrees), Phoenix (113 degrees), Memphis (102 degrees), San Antonio (101 degrees), and Oklahoma City (100 degrees) have all experienced temperatures at or above the 100-degree mark.

Meanwhile, residents of the upper Midwest are bracing themselves for potential tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds, particularly on Saturday, as reported by FLIPBOARD.

The region remains on high alert for severe weather conditions.
