Dangerous heat expected through weekend

POCONOS – The first official heatwave of the summer, defined by three days of temps above 90°, is expected for the weekend and into early next week.  Comfort index levels may be around 100°.

Sunday and Monday are likely to be the most dangerous days because of temps in the upper 90s and high humidity.

Health officials caution against strenuous outdoor activities between noon and 6 p.m. 

Police are reminding parents to never leave children or pets in cars.  That scenario can turn deadly in minutes.
