ABC News Senior Medical Contributor Dr Jennifer Ashton says watch yourself for signs of illness, warning that dehydration can happen to anybody - not just people who work outside. The National Weather Service says hot and humid weather will persist through the remainder of the work week, with temperatures in the lower 90s in most areas today and tomorrow and afternoon heat index values at or just above 100 degrees. Meteorologists say Friday may be the hottest day of the Region heat wave...with highs in the mid 90s in some spots and heat index values ranging from 100 to 105 degrees. Relief from the heat, though, is expected to arrive late Friday, as a cold front approaches from the northwest bringing the potential for showers and thunderstorms to parts of the area, followed by cooler and less humid weather over the weekend.
