If you thought today was hot just wait

Overnight: Hazy Warm and Humid

Lows: 74-79 | Wind: Light

Tuesday: Partly Cloudy Hot Risk PM T'storm

Highs: 90-95 | Rain: 50% Chance PM T'storms DC

Wednesday: Becoming Sunny Hot and Humid

Highs: 90-95 | Air Quality: Unhealthy

The oppressive heat and humdity covers much of the East.  The worst today waas in the upper Midwest with Minneapolis seeing a heat index of almost 115 with dew points in the 70s.  Tomorrow a weak weather front may trigger some afternoon thunderstorms but then Wednesday into Saturday the searing midwest heat moves east so it is likely our heat index may reach 110 by Saturday.  Dangerous heat so just take it easy and plenty of water.
