Three cities broke previous heat records Sunday as most of the country continues to experience record-high temperatures. The National Weather Service (NWS) is expecting continuous heat Monday in some parts of the country.

In Boston, the NWS Boston reported that the Massachusetts city reached 100 degrees Sunday, passing the previous record of 98 degrees in 1933. Hartford, on the other hand, tied its 1987 record of 96 degrees.

In Rhode Island, the city of Providence broke its daily temperature record when heat levels reached 96 degrees Sunday. The previous record of 94 degrees was set in 1933, NWS Boston reported.

Newark city in New York recorded its fifth straight day of high temperatures Sunday, the NWS station in New York reported. The heat levels reached 100 degrees to set a new daily record high.

Philadelphia’s Reading nearly broke its previous record of 100 degrees when temperatures reached 99 degrees Sunday, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Warning Coordination Meteorologist at the NWS Mount Holly, Sarah Johnson, told the outlet that the “excessive heat warning” remains in effect in the area through Monday as forecasters expect temperatures to stay high throughout the day.

The NWS said it expects high temperatures to continue being “an issue” in some parts of the United States on Monday. “#Heat will be an issue for parts of the East, the south-central U.S. and begin building in the Northwest,” the agency said in a recent update.

In a three-day forecast, the NWS Weather Prediction Center (WPC) warned of “excessive heat” expected to continue “across portions of the Central Plains and Middle Mississippi Valley through Tuesday.”

The WPC also particularly noted that “100F+ degree days” will continue “across parts of eastern Kansas/Oklahoma into southern Missouri and northern Arkansas over the next couple of days.”
