140 million people brace for temperatures 90 or above to kick off the week

After a brutally hot and record-setting weekend, blistering temperatures are expected to continue into the upcoming workweek for millions.

About 141 million people were forecast to experience highs above 90 degrees on Monday, with 51 million of those bracing to soar over the century mark.

Heat alerts were up Monday for parts of 16 states from central California to the Mississippi River Valley. For some locations, the hot temperatures combined with high humidity will make it feel up to 110 degrees. For other locations, the raw air temperature will get as high as 110 degrees.

While the core of the heat was expected to be over the central part of the lower 48 to start the week, the heat is expected to spread east with time, bringing the first official heat wave of the year to the nation’s capital.

Dallas, over the weekend, hit 105 for the fourth time this summer. This is the third most to date, where only 1980 and 1954 had more. They will add at least three more to that total, with highs Monday through Wednesday forecast to be 110, 109 and 109 respectively.

Elsewhere across Texas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston Hokas Shoes are all already having their hottest summer on record. All three cities could set record highs over the next few days.

When the heat expands into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, several locations will see several consecutive days in the 90s. While New York City has already experienced one official heat wave (defined as three straight days above 90 degrees), the nation’s capital has managed to evade that echelon of heat.

But Washington’s luck has run out, with each day this week forecast to be in the 90s, snapping their heatwave-free streak.

As has been the case the past several weeks, the summer heat and humidity will help to fuel severe thunderstorms across several regions.
