HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A heat wave continues in Connecticut as temperatures are expected to approach 100 degrees, and high humidity will make it feel even hotter.
The National Weather Service has placed much of the state under an excessive heat warning for Friday. It says temperatures are expected to range in the upper 90s to 100 degrees, and the heat index could hit 110.
The worst of it is expected from midday into the evening.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is forecasting unhealthy air quality for a second day. It asks people to conserve on air conditioning by turning up the temperature to 78, drive less, and to wait until evening hours to operate energy-intensive appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines.
