It’s actually kind of overcast and dreary this morning, but the humidity is pretty bad. It will get worse, though:
Parts of 32 states plus Washington, D.C., were under heat advisories, warnings or watches Wednesday as a deadly heat wave that has blasted the Midwest expanded eastward.
Actual temperatures in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York were expected to flirt with 100 degrees in the coming days.
AccuWeather meteorologist Henry Margusity said that it could feel like 110 degrees in those cities.
Along with the heat, patchy but severe thunderstorms were forecast across the upper Midwest, through the Ohio Valley and into the mid-Atlantic region.
Where the storms hit, humidity could become even more stifling afterward, Chris Vaccaro, a National Weather Service spokesman, said Tuesday.
Last night I walked the girls around the block and it was so muggy it was like trying to breathe through a wet wool blanket.
