Rising temperatures and humidity across the mid-Atlantic will have it feeling like the end of June.

After a day of temperatures near 80 degrees on Monday, the humidity will be kicking up on Tuesday, making it feel sticky across the area.

Temperatures will be reaching the middle to upper 80s across Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia Tuesday and the lower 80s around New York City.

These figures will be roughly 10 degrees above average for this time in May.

On Wednesday, summerlike temperatures and humidity will continue ahead of thunderstorms, some strong or perhaps severe, across the Ohio Valley and western Pennsylvania and New York.

These storms will reach the East Coast on Thursday, after weakening some. However, a few of these storms could be strong. The main risks with these storms will be locally strong wind gusts and heavy rain.
