I wonder why it’s so hot all the time!
Heat will spread from the Midwest to the New York and East Coast today, boosting demand for electricity to run air conditioners and increasing health risks.
Advisories and warnings extend from New York to northern Virginia, including Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, where temperatures are forecast to reach 99 degrees Fahrenheit (37 Celsius), according to the National Weather Service.
The high in Manhattan’s Central Park may reach 95, which would tie a daily record set in 1933, according to the weather service. The weather service expected yesterday that the record might be broken today, though it has since revised its forecast.
