July-Like Heat, Texas to New England

Temperatures climbed toward July-like readings today in much of the eastern half of the nation after a weekend of record heat.

Highs in the 80s and 90s were forecast from the southern Plains to areas of the East, and temperatures were expected above 100 in parts of Texas.

Thermometers recorded highs Sunday in several cities, including Detroit at 86; 84 at Bluefield, W.Va.; 89 at Burlington, Vt.; 93 at both Harrisburg, Pa., and New York; and 94 at Concord, N.H., and Newark, N.J. Washington's Dulles International Airport tied its record at 90 degrees.

Concord's former record of 91 had been on the books since 1895.

Texas was hotter, with records of 98 at Lubbock, 101 at Wichita Falls and 106 at Abilene.

Even Michigan's northern city of Marquette, on the shore of chilly Lake Superior, has had three days of record highs in the 80s, including 88 on Friday.

But a cooling trend was coming, with only about 70 forecast today in Marquette, and readings in the 70s were expected by Thursday in the New York City area.
