Under a Heat Advisory, the heat index could be anywhere from 100 to 105 degrees. Beaver, Allegheny, Washington, Greene, Westmoreland and Fayette counties are under the advisory.
The NWS reminds people to stay hydrated.
The high temperature was forecasted at 92 degrees for Wednesday.
Scattered storms will be around with the Laurels and places along and north of I-80 having the best chance for rain and storms. That rain is needed as the past month and a half has seen below-average rain totals.
When it comes to the stretch of 90-degree weather, today will likely make the sixth day in a row with highs in the 90s. The last time this happened was in 2012 when the streak also reached six days.
Thre is still a chance to see eight straight days in the 90s, something that has not happened in a quarter of a century.
