Forecasters said there will be a heatwave in the eastern United States as well. A severe heat wave warning is in place for parts of Baltimore and Maryland. Temperatures in these areas can reach 43 degrees Celsius.

For the Baltimore area, the National Weather Service advises drinking plenty of fluids, staying in air-conditioned rooms and staying indoors.

Hot and dry weather and wind conditions across the western United States last week forced fire officials and forecasters to issue warnings of elevated wildfire risk.
