A 30-year-old man died near the finish line of the RBC Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday when the northeast hot weather is 100 degrees, the hottest May day ever recorded in the region.

The unidentified runner fell shortly before 9 a.m. near the finish line on Coney Island, when temperatures rose from below 60 degrees at dawn to nearly 80 degrees by morning, with a maximum of 93 degrees expected in New York. The New York Times reported on Saturday.

He and five other runners, who took part in the 13.1-mile race, were hospitalized and taken to Coney Island Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Three other runners are reported to be in critical condition and the other two have suffered minor injuries, the New York Fire Department said.

While race organizers warned participants about the recommendation for heat in New York, the first in 16 years, it is not yet clear whether the heat led to deaths and injuries, officials said.

Saturday’s heat is forecast to continue until Sunday and then subside after thunderstorms, with temperatures returning to normal by Monday.

The death at today’s Brooklyn Half Marathon was the first since 2014, when a participant in the half marathon died in the city.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams also issued a warning about Saturday’s heat, saying the beaches are still closed and asking residents to check on neighbors.

This comes at a time when a heat wave is sweeping across the East Coast, bringing record-breaking May weather that has prompted the National Weather Service (NWS) to issue heat warnings to more than 35 million people in several states.

One such area was Richmond, Virginia, where temperatures rose to a record 94F as the city hosts its annual Boulder Bash climbing tournament.

The temperature is projected to remain at 94F until the competition finals begin at 5pm EST.

Three-digit temperatures may be recorded in New Jersey on Saturday afternoon, and New Jersey and Trenton are forecast to record a record 95F and 97F in May, respectively.

On Saturday, Philadelphia is forecast to meet the highest record of all time – 95 degrees F, while the temperature will remain until the evening.

The same record temperature was forecast for Baltimore, where the extra humidity would feel like 100F, warns NWS.

Temperatures in Baltimore are projected to drop to 90F before sunset when the 147th Preakness Stakes are scheduled to take place.

While temperatures are expected to drop in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York on Sunday after thunderstorms, the heat wave is projected to continue into New England.

It is expected that on Sunday afternoon in Boston will be a maximum of 96F, almost breaking the record for all time in the grass at 97F, set in 1880.

Matthew Belk, a meteorologist with the NWS office in Boston, said the heat comes northeast earlier than usual, as 90F is usually observed in Boston in June.

“We’re definitely a little ahead of schedule,” he told CNN
