This week's stifling heat across Ohio is about to get hotter.
Highs in the low to mid-90s are in Wednesday's forecast throughout the state, with even more sizzling temperatures to come.
The National Weather Service looks for Cincinnati and Columbus to reach 99 degrees on Thursday, while Toledo could soar to 105.
It could feel even warmer sooner in the western-most counties. The weather service has an area including Cincinnati, Dayton and Lima under an excessive heat warning because of a combination of heat and humidity Wednesday and Thursday.
