WASHINGTON - The heat wave that has gripped our area for the last several days continued in full force Monday as temperatures reached triple digits in the D.C. region.
A heat index, making it feel like it's between 105° and 110°, made the already unbearable temperatures that much worse.
Monday is the hottest day since 2012 as the high temperature at Reagan National Airport in Washington D.C. reached 100 degrees, which ties a record also set all the way back in 1930, according to FOX 5's Sue Palka. It also reached 100 degrees at Dulles International Airport, breaking the previous record of 98 degrees in 2010. In addition, BWI Airport tied its daily high record of 100 degrees on Monday, also set in 2010.
Expect the hot and humid temperatures to continue this week. Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 90s for the next three days with the heat index continuing to soar over 100 degrees.
