11:20 pm
night. we topped out at 89 degrees. we're close to 90 and that's where we are going to be the next couple of afternoons. record 94. average of 77. much closer to the average. we're not the only people dealing with the heat. take a look. we've seen records from new orleans straight up to chicago. and then the cool air is going to make a push, but you get the idea. we're going to get in on that for the next couple of days here. at the same time, there's a couple of fronts running along the rim of the heat and we have the tropics. it's a tropical storm barrels. it's sort of a hybrid and that's off the coastline. right now, over the next day or so, it's how it comes together. we pass off to the north. and then it will open up the
