TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) - Much of the East is sweltering through another day of oppressive heat.
Weather experts have been warning of dangerous conditions in the Mid-Atlantic. One meteorologist at the National Weather Service summed up the morning temperatures in Washington, D.C., by saying "Oh, it's disgusting." By mid-afternoon temperatures on the thermometer topped 100.
One possible weather-related death was reported in Maryland, where paramedics said the high temperatures and humidity likely played a role in the death of a 20-year-old man who was biking, went into cardiac arrest and hit his head on a tree as he fell.
There's little relief in the forecast. Tomorrow's highs are expected to reach into the low- to mid-90s.
