It might be the middle of what is historically the hottest days of the year, but it certainly does not feel like the dog days of summer in many places in the East.
Cool and unsettled weather is expected to continue across the Northeast, Great Lakes and mid-Atlantic through the end of the week.
Ups and downs with the temperature are typical of any season, but some have found it especially cold so far this summer.
Temperatures Tuesday afternoon from New England to the Tennessee Valley will dip between 5 and 10 degrees below average for the end of July.

if the lifeguards are wearing sweatshirts and using their towels as blankets it's probably too cold to swim and you should leave— Massie Block (@AllPreppedUp) July 28, 2014
The nighttime hours will also be rather chilly, it will also be chilly enough to challenge record lows across the Southeast.
Along with the cool air, there will be unsettled weather across the Northeast.
AccuWeather.com Chief Meteorologist Elliot Abrams said, "Any one of the thunderstorms could have more bark than bite."
No one day through the end of the week will be particularly heavy, but spotty showers and thunderstorms remain in the forecast through late in the week.
To keep track of the showers and storms, keep a watch for AccuWeather's MinuteCast™ and Interactive Weather Radar before heading out over the next several days.

"That way you can make sure you don't end up outdoors while it's briefly raining cats and dogs," Abrams added.
