One question on everyone's mind is, has it been this hot in April. I am here to tell you that I was witness to the hot blast that occurred on the Easter Weekend in 1976. That barn burner produced 90-degree-plus temperatures everywhere from the Midwest to New England. In New York City, it reached 96 during that heat wave, and Boston recorded 94.
From southern Ohio to southern New England, the heat will be on for another day, then temperatures will be significantly lower on Wednesday.
