Meteorologists have predicted a growing dome of high pressure that will bring searing temperatures to half the country.
Temperatures are expected to reach into the 90s, with heat indexes into the 100s. States from the Rocky Mountains to the East Coast, including Ohio, will experience these dangerous high temps for the next several days.
