Richmond, Va. (Newsradiowrva.com) - The metro area is looking at a heat wave for at least the next six days.  NBC12 meterologist Andrew Freiden says temperatures will be between the mid-90s to triple digits almost every day between now and next Tuesday.  Freiden also says there will not be much cooling at night because of the humidity.

Freiden says the heat wave is not that abnormal, as we are just happening to see an increase of a few degrees at the hottest time of the year.

The Richmond Ambulance Authority is asking people to keep their eye out for people having issues in the heat.  Those most at risk include kids and the elderly.
