It’s could feel like 110 degrees on Friday, and that’s why the National Weather Service has already issued an excessive heat watch for the region.
Both Prince William and Stafford counties are affected, as well as Fairfax, Spotsylvania, King George, and a portion of Fauquier in Virginia, Washington, D.C., and suburban Maryland.
While temperatures will range in the upper 90s, the heat index values will make it feel like triple digit temperatures.
It’ll be a departure from the past few days, as temperatures have hovered in the 80s and fall-like temperatures have prevailed at nights and in the evenings.
The weather service urges residents to stay out of the heat, stay in air conditioning, to drink plenty of fluids, and to check up on relatives neighbors.
