A major heat wave is coming this weekend and will affect about two-thirds of the country, so get you're air conditioning in order and head to the nearest pool. 

High humidity and temperatures are forecasted from the Midwest to the Northeast over the next several days. 

The Weather Channel is predicting highs well into the 90s from the Plains to New England. 

On Sunday through Tuesday cities from Omaha, Nebraska to Bangor, Maine could experience record breaking temperatures. Some of those records have stood since the 1800s, according to USA Today. On Sunday it's expected to be hotter in Bangor than in Los Angeles. 

Meteorologists say the heat wave is being caused by a strong upper-level ridge of high pressure that will build across the country over the weekend. This will cause air to sink under the pressure ridge, which prevents clouds from forming.
