CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – It’s a heatwave that’s affecting nearly everyone in the country.

AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Bob Larson says there’s hot air just about everywhere, and when it drops from “hot” to “very warm” here on Thursday, then the heat returns for the weekend.

Bob with the proof that this isn’t unusual: we’re nowhere near breaking any temperature records.

And Bob says we’re not going to break any temperature records over the next five days, because it’s supposed to be occasionally hot this time of year.

Here’s the AccuWeather forecast for Canton:

Today: clouds and sun; breezy and hot. High 92. (89 yesterday)

Tonight: warm and humid with a thunderstorm this evening; it could be severe. Low 73.

Tomorrow: sunshine and patchy clouds; not quite as warm, but humid.. High 87.

Lots of sun and back to the hot stuff Friday and 90.
