Americans across the Northeast and Midwest are experiencing a second coming of summer as the sun is beating down and bringing temps into the 80s and 90s.
Midwest cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, and Cincinnati recorded highs of 84, 90, and 84 respectively on Sunday with several days of similar heat ahead.
Twin Cities Marathon was canceled Sunday on short notice as officials said they were worried about maladies caused from the unseasonably warm weather.
The heat is expected to loom over much of the Midwest and Northeast through mid-week until a casual October cool-off moves in to the area.

Chicago saw a high of 83 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday and could see the same temperature Tuesday, along with a temp of 81 degrees on Monday and Wednesday.
Minneapolis is similarly expected to see temps into the high 80s and potentially as high as 90 degrees through Tuesday before much cooler 60s and 70s move in.
The heat in the Twin Cities area was so worrisome that event organizers for the annual Medtronic Marathon canceled the event mere hours before the start.
Officials attributed the cancelation to 'EAS Black Flag' weather conditions in a press release notifying runners of the cancelation.
'It saddens Twin Cities In Motion and our partners to be unable to hold the races that runners have been pointing toward for months, but the safety of participants and the community will always be our primary concern,' organizers shared.
'Extreme heat conditions can tax both runners and our emergency medical response systems. We ask the entire running community to come together for the safety of everyone involved,' the release continued.
In the Northeast, the temperatures are expected to break records on Tuesday.
Residents of Bangor, Maine will see a temperature of 80 degrees, which rivals the previous daily October high record, set at 77 degrees in 2000.
Concord, New Hampshire - a city often acknowledged for its foliage and picturesque fall vibe - will see 85, one degree warmer than the record set in 1967.
Meanwhile, Westfield, Massachusetts is expected to hit 84 degrees Fahrenheit. That temperature would break the 1927 record of 83, according to FOX Weather.
