Heat wave persists along East Coast, tropical wave bringing storms to South Florida

Written by on July 21, 2020

Stifling summer heat will linger on Tuesday for parts of the East Coast as eyes turn to the Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical developments.

While a few degrees lower than Monday, afternoon high temperatures across the mid-Atlantic and Northeast will once again be above-average on Tuesday and the rest of the week.

High heat and humidity will make it feel well over 100 degrees, especially in areas from the Chesapeake Bay south into the Carolinas.
