PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Let me make this simple for you...

If you have air conditioning, stay inside Monday.

Period.

The hottest day of year so far is going to punch you in the face on Monday...

By Monday afternoon, the heat index is expected to be at or above 100 degrees. That’s not hype, it’s fact.

You know what else is fact? Heat is dangerous, wayyyyy more dangerous than the cold.

In fact, Heat kills around 1,500 inner city residents in the U.S. every year. That number is far greater than Tornados, Hurricanes or other “disasters”.

If there is a silver lining to the heat, it's that it'll be short lived...

Instead of typing up some long drawn out heat safety list, this picture is easier to understand...

And remember, if it's hot for you...REMEMBER YOUR PET!..

A cold front should trundle through the area Monday night bringing with it showers and storms, and more importantly, slightly cooler weather.

Plus, long range models have below normal temperatures arriving late this month through early July...which is fabulous.

Stay Cool.
