The calendar may say spring but the temperatures in the East definitely say summer.

In the New York City area, the National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning and predicts 100-degree weather that could feel five degrees sweatier with the humidity. It led to power cuts and subway disruptions over the weekend.

The heat and humidity will be oppressive in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

Parts of Massachusetts will break 90 for the third straight day.

The high yesterday at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina was 101, topping the record of 100 set just the day before.

Forecasters think the heat wave should break by mid-week.
