A stubborn ridge of high pressure has left the northeast with record-breaking heat this past week and weekend. Numerous records have been broken, and Sunday has been no different. D.C. and Baltimore also hit their first 100-degree day in June since 2012 on Saturday.

Temperatures will begin to feel more seasonal by Monday afternoon but the cooler temperatures don't last for long - highs climb through the especially along I-95. Drink plenty of water, avoid being outside from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time, and stay in an air-conditioned location!

We know it is summer time and we expect hot temps, but remember to take care and check on neighbors in the heat, don't over-exert yourself, and never leave children or pets in hot cars. Temperatures will be 10-20° above normal for this time of year and our bodies are not accustomed to it yet. If you're looking for relief, unfortunately, the forecast does not have it - above-average temperatures are likely to continue through the end of the month.
