Temperatures around the U.S. are expected to climb to mid-80s in the Northeast, and 90s in the South, breaking records on Tuesday, NBC News reported. Forty-four cities experienced record-breaking temperatures Monday, with Dodge City, Kansas reaching 100 degrees.
The heat wave is expected to hit the eastern part of the nation through Wednesday, with a strong cold front following.
“[Tuesday and Wednesday] should be the highest numbers,” Weather Channel meteorologist Kevin Roth said. “I would expect some 50 records or more set each day.”
