Wednesday marks the first official day of summer and for much of the east coast it will be scorching hot.
Temperatures across much of the country will be near or top 100 degrees Wednesday and Thursday.
Remember to exercise caution when spending time outside. If you feel dizzy, nausea, have a headache, or a rapid heartbeat you may be suffering from heat exhaustion.
Make sure to avoid strenuous activity outside between 11am and 6pm, as that's considered the hottest time of the day. Secondly, make sure to take breaks and drink plenty of water, and don't forget the sunscreen.
