It is a scorching Monday, with possible record highs in some states, but the Midwest and East will start to cool down by Tuesday.

Heat advisories and warnings have been issued in 18 states, from Kansas to Maine, as of Monday, ABC News reported.

In the Midwest, several cities broke record highs Sunday including Waukegan, Illinois, at 93 degrees and La Crosse, Wisconsin, at 98 degrees.

The heat expands to the Northeast and East Coast, producing close-to-record highs in Boston at 92 degrees, Hartford at 92, New York City at 92 and Philadelphia at 92.

However, the National Weather Service has forecast a cold front will make its way into the Northeast Monday night, and will continue into the northern Mid-Atlantic on Tuesday.

ABC noted that by Wednesday, highs will be in the 70s in Chicago and near 80 in New York City.

Over the weekend, the Midwest was pummeled by flash floods, with several inches of rain falling in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula Sunday.

The heavy rains produced dozens of sinkholes and washed out roads in several towns from northern Minnesota and Wisconsin to Upper Michigan, The Weather Channel reported.

The U.S. has been gripped by severe weather patterns.

The drought-stricken U.S. West has been plagued by a series of blazes, with the most recent wildfire erupting last week in an area of Colorado known for its ski resorts, forcing the evacuation of more than 1,300 homes.

Meanwhile, the formation of two powerful storms, Aletta and Bud, in the eastern Pacific Ocean last week left many wondering about whether the Atlantic will be hit by increased hurricane activity.
