Shock forecast: NOAA predicts heat index of 116 in Washington, D.C.

By Jason Samenow - NOAA has upped its peak heat index prediction for D.C. Friday to a stunning, sweltering 116 degrees. Remarkably, it predicts there is a 90 percent chance it will reach at least 110 and a 100 percent chance of at least 105. Earlier today, NOAA was predicting a maximum heat index of 109 Friday. And poor Richmond, Va.! NOAA projects its heat index will soar to a stifling 118 degrees.
