A dangerous heat wave is approaching the Charlotte area this week. Mecklenburg County is working to provide relief for residents during the hotter-than-normal temperatures.

Heat indices are predicted to range between 100 and 105 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The county opened cooling stations for the public on Thursday and Friday.
