NORFOLK-The extreme heat continues Friday and the National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from noon to 8:00 p.m. for Hampton Roads and northeast North Carolina. 

It will be dangerously hot again Saturday, says 13News Meteorologist Julie Wilcox. "Temperatures will be near 100 degrees, but it will feel like 110+."

Portsmouth residents can get a break from the heat by going to any of the "cooling centers" open through Saturday -- libraries, Social Services on High Street, the lobby of City Hall and Senior Station on Clifford Street.

In Hampton, city libraries and community centers will be open for people to get out of the heat. Hampton Roads Ecumenical Lodging & Provisions will be driving their mobile cooling center around the city through Sunday, distributing bottled water and other cooling items.

About two dozen Va. Beach businesses will let you fill up your water bottle for free so you stay hydrated while hitting the beach or the shops. Click here to find participating businesses.

Mother Nature won't turn down the heat across the mid-Atlantic until next week, with temperatures predicted in the upper 80s.
