Heat and humidity have draped the Northeast for yet another day, pushing power companies to crank up power to cool the sticky masses and keeping the mercury hovering around 100 from Virginia to New Hampshire.

The crux of the heat was situated Wednesday over the Philadelphia area, where an excessive heat warning was put into effect until 8 p.m. The National Weather Service says high humidity levels could make it feel as hot as Tuesday.

Scattered power outages have affected customers up and down the coast.

Rail riders in New Jersey are advised to expect delays Wednesday, a day after commuter trains slowed when railroad tracks became too hot.

Tuesday's hot weather broke records for the day in New York, where it hit 103, and in Philadelphia, where it reached 102.
