If you’ve been outside this week, you’re probably aware that we are in the heat of the summer.

According to Climate Central, temperatures will likely just continue to climb as time goes on.

Summers across the United States are already warmer than those recorded in the 1970s.

According to the website, as greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase, so will the temperatures.

The researchers created an interactive map to showcase exactly what expected temperatures will be in the next century.

Analysts say by 2100, summers in Montana will feel like Riverside, California.

Also, Las Vegas is expected to feel like Saudi Arabia.

Oklahoma City is expected to reach average temperatures found in Laredo, Texas.
