The summertime high pressure ridge, sometimes referred to as a “heat dome,” has set air pressure records as recorded by weather balloons in Pittsburgh and Virginia, and has been responsible for sending air temperatures rocketing into the mid- to upper-90s, and even the lower triple digits, in some parts of the East. Kennedy Airport, for example, broke a daily high temperature record on Thursday, with a high of 100°F. Record-high low temperatures were also set in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. The National Weather Service issued heat warnings and advisories for nearly two-dozen states on Thursday, with a smaller number to be affected on Friday in the densely populated Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.

The heat index, which is a measure how the temperature feels to the humid body, has reached the dangerous range of 105 to 115°F in some spots. While heat waves during July are nothing new, the weather pattern that is creating this one is rare enough for meteorologists to take note.
