(CNN)You're drenched in sweat, couldn't sleep last night and regret ever setting foot outside. Don't worry, you're not alone.
A hot, humid air mass is blanketing much of the mid-Atlantic and Southeast United States, according to the National Weather Service. High temperatures are forecast to reach up to 100 degrees in those regions and above 90 degrees in other areas.
Globally, the world just experienced the hottest June ever recorded, according to NASA.
Alas, as rapper Nelly once prophesied in a hip-hop hit, "It's getting hot in here."
"Otherwise, if you do day after day of lengthy exposure to heat, you start to feel really drained. In general, I start the day drinking lots of water and before going to sleep try to drink a liter," Wedeman said. "Does it work? Who knows?"
"Always have a hat handy. One you can douse with water when need be, as well as a scarf for the same purpose," he added.
It's summer, so do go swimming when you can. Even better, "try to remember how miserable winter is."
