Even here in the D.C. area, where we haven't seen any prolonged periods of extreme heat this summer, almost every day of the next week will be at or above 90°. Tuesday's and Wednesday's afternoon highs will easily reach the low 90s.
London, England, will be near 100° Monday, and 103° Tuesday, which could break the all-time hot weather record. They will then cool back into the 70s for the rest of the week.
Dallas, Texas, will be near 108° Monday and is likely to have high temperatures above 100° for at least the next two weeks.
