Northeast Heat Wave to End by Monday

May 31, 2013; 6:06 AM ET

Friday 9AM

Temperatures will soar past 90 degrees this afternoon and tomorrow in much of the I-95 corridor from D.C. to near Boston. The chance for thunderstorms will increase from west to east on Sunday as a cold front from the middle of the country approaches. Some of the storms from northern Virginia to Maine could be severe Sunday afternoon. Once the front goes by, temperatures will trend down.
