Golf courses were packed in Indiana, tennis courts were mobbed in Pennsylvania and people strolled past the Christmas tree at New York's Rockefeller Center in T-shirts as record-breaking warm weather settled in across the eastern two-thirds of the United States. For days now, temperatures have been as much as 20 degrees above normal in the Northeast, the Midwest and the Rockies. Cooling is expected later this week.

Commuters baked on subway platforms that felt like furnaces Thursday while children cooled off in pools as the Northeast and parts of the Midwest staggered through the fifth day of an oppressive heat wave that has already killed at least 20 people. In New York, the temperature reached a record 103 degrees for the date while in neighboring Newark, N.J., it topped 105 degrees, the National Weather Service said. The old record in both cities was 100, set in 1949.

How hot was it on the East Coast on Tuesday? In Baltimore, it was so wretchedly hot--101, a record--that polar bears at the city zoo were served a new kind of Popsicle: fruit and peanuts frozen into giant blocks. In New Castle, Del., Terry Piascik of AAA Ice said customers were clamoring for ice for their Jacuzzis. Piascik was ecstatic. In 13 years, his company has never been this busy.

A prolonged dry spell has seized the Northeast, withering crops and sucking rivers and lakes so dry that Baltimore has only a month's worth of drinking water in its reservoirs. Maryland declared the first drought emergency in its history Friday, joining Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and scores of communities in urging people and businesses to curb water use. The Saharan summer is so worrisome that forecasters are rooting for a tropical storm. Better yet, two.
