For those certain that Sunday was way, way hotter than it’s been in a while: You are correct. The temperature hit 93 degrees in New York yesterday, but the humidity, smog, and the seething resentment you felt toward everyone who managed to get out of town made it feel more like 105 degrees. It was the hottest day of 2015 so far — and today isn’t looking much better: “Highs in New York City could top 92 degrees, but the heat index could climb into the triple digits,” according to NBC News’s weather people. The mercury should dip back into the more tolerable 80s by Wednesday, so just try to stay alive until then.
