Cooler temperatures are within sight but likely not soon enough, or cool enough, for a large swath of the country hit with dangerously high temperatures for days.
The relief is expected to begin arriving Thursday in some regions of the country as a cold front drops south from Canada. But it is not soon enough for others. New York City, for instance, is bracing for another day of temperatures in the high 90s.
Most states in the U.S. had at least one region where the temperature hit 90 degrees.
