Global warming affects 90% of AmericansTens of millions of Americans will swelter through the hottest weather of the summer over the next few days as a record-breaking heat wave builds across much of the central and eastern U.S.

"A dangerous and widespread summer heat wave is expected through this upcoming weekend across much of the central and eastern U.S.," the National Weather Service said. "A large dome of high pressure will allow high temperatures to surge into the 90s and 100s in many locations, while heat indices will top 100 and approach 110 degrees or higher."

In all, more than 115 million Americans live where some level of heat alert is in effect, according to the Weather Service. And a total of 290 million will see high temperatures of at least 90 degrees at some point in the next week, BAM Weather meteorologist Ryan Maue tweeted.
