Cool Down in Store for the East Coast
Temperatures have been heating up for the East Coast for the past couple of days due to a high pressure system sitting over the Southeast. Providence, Rhode Island even tied with the old record on Tuesday, topping out at 95 degrees.
We're continuing with the hot temperatures today, as well. Multiple heat advisories and excessive heat warnings are in effect down the east coast.
Most temperatures today are looking to be in the mid to upper 90s, but with the moisture in the air, temperatures could feel like they are in the lower 100s. The temperatures are also well above normal for this time of year. Temperatures should only be hitting the upper 70s to upper 80s for the end of August.
Relief from the temperatures is on the way, though. A cold front will continue to push eastward, bringing rain and cold air with it. By the end of the week, places like Boston and New York City will be in the 70s for the afternoon highs!
