In fact, it's the city's hottest July in recorded history, and residents and visitors are ready for the heat to break.

The heat set another record: The first time meteorologists ever recorded Boston having back-to-back nights of at least 80-degree temperatures.
Seventeen times this month, the temperature didn't fall below 70 degrees overnight.
The heat and humidity fed into Wednesday's intense thunderstorms, which broke the month's second heat wave.
NBC10 Boston viewers also sounded off on whether it's been too hot. See the results here.
