Temperatures skyrocketed to near 110° yesterday in central South Dakota and today won’t be any cooler, Minneapolis looks like they’ll be within reach of the century mark while Chicago’s upper 90s of today may hit 100° tomorrow. The heat core is sliding east and tomorrow should see 100 once again in Washington and Baltimore, possibly 98°-100° in Philadelphia while New York and Boston top 97.

Tuesday will see a cold front slide south over the Northern Plains sparking off string tio possibly severe thunderstorms cutting the heat for the Dakotas as well as Minneapolis where it’s only going to reach the 80s. The cooldown for the Northern Plaind and Upper Lakes will be welcome relief but Chicagoans along with their neighbours over the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic will need to wait till Wednesday as the heat and humidity cranks into high gear. It’s the front which will help nudge the hottest air into the eastern third.

During Wednesday, the cold front will slide through the Northeast, killing the 90s and high humidity and will allow welcome cooling but as a result, strong storms will erupt.

These were the scorching highs over the N Plains yesterday.
