The 100-degree day at Atlantic City International Airport, the first since 2012, marked the peak of the heat wave. Temperatures will go from stifling to "just" very hot on Monday, before turning into refreshing weather mid to late week.

However, this will come at the expense of thunderstorms, which may be severe and heavy at times. Here's what to know as we transition between patterns. 

Note that all numbers are from Atlantic City International Airport unless otherwise noted.
