"High pressure will be in place over the region today, leading to another very hot and humid day with unsafe heat", the National Weather Service said.

Expect a high in the mid-90s with a heat index above 100ºF on Independence Day. If it is determined that clouds/thunderstorms may be delayed, the Excessive Heat Warning could be extended again over the entire northeast Illinois/northwest IN area Sunday. Highs will range from 90-95 with a heat index from 100-105.

The high temperature on Saturday is expected to 83.

Other areas may still feel like they're at or above 100 degrees because of the heat index, which indicates what the temperature feels like. Temperatures are expected to drop to to a low around 70 degrees overnight into Monday, the weather service said. The city could top 90 for up to seven consecutive days this week, something the National Weather Service in NY has said happens about once every 33 years.

China says it won’t fire ‘first shot’ in trade standoff with US
China said that it wouldn't implement tariffs ahead of the USA on Friday, after previous arrangements put it on course to do so. Donald Trump is due to slap as much as $34billion (£25 billion) of Chinese exports with 25 percent tariffs.

A cold front will sweep through early Friday - and that will be our game changer.

That strong heat dome should finally start to break down slightly by the latter half of next week.

The National Weather Service said that Friday could bring Thunderstorms, ushering in a weekend of temperatures in the 80s. Forecasters were concerned about a thunderstorm that was producing golf ball-size hail and damaging winds.

The West Coast is also bracing for a major heat wave as wildfires burn. "The airmass will not move out of the region until sometime next weekend", the DEP warned on its website. In fact, Heat Advisories and an Air Quality Alert have again been posted for today as we're experiencing similar conditions to what we experienced Yesterday.

Android P Beta 3 released: We’re getting closer
That's still listed in the dev options as of this release, but we have no idea if it will remain available in the final version. For now, you'll need a Pixel smartphone - either a Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 , or Pixel 2 XL - in order to join the beta.

If temperature forecasts hold, New York City could blow past that and see 90 degree temperatures through Thursday.

Some towns, including Scarborough, were taking steps to help citizens who might not have air conditioning.

The City of Boston on Sunday declared a heat emergency and community centers across the city are expected to be open as cooling centers.

Spain's Iago Aspas thought he scored before Russian Federation keeper's brilliant kick save
It was the classic "tiki-taka" style that led to a World Cup title in 2010, bookended by a pair of European Championships. Spain had 25 shots, nine of which were on frame, but Akinfeev saved them all, only conceded on an unfortunate own goal.
