A ridge of high pressure over the eastern sections of the nation has brought heat and humidity to the Northeast. High temperatures Tuesday were well into the 90s with the heat index near 100 in many locations. Heat Advisories have been issued from southern Pennsylvania to New England.

Relief will be felt across the region on Thursday as highs back down into the 70s and 80s for most areas.
