Temperatures refuse to go up this millennium, so alarmists had to come up with yet another way to jack up temperatures – by 15-30 degrees.
New York City Temperatures to Feel Like 110 as Heat Wave Spreads Into East

Temperatures in New York, Philadelphia and Washington may feel as high as 110 degrees or more this week as a heat wave spreads from the Midwest into the eastern U.S., increasing energy demand.
Portions of 33 states may have a heat index, which measures air temperature and humidity, above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius) tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service. The index reached 131, a level common only along the Red Sea in the Middle East, in Iowa on July 18, according to Weather Underground Inc. in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
“You’re seeing a sustained level of heat and humidity, and you’re not seeing a lot of relief overnight,” said Travis Hartman, a meteorologist at MDA EarthSat Weather in Rockville, Maryland. “Power demand is going to be very high.”
