Americans this week will get a reprieve from the stifling heat that has blanketed much of the country from the Midwest to the East Coast.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Andrew Orrison says temperatures will be in the 80s in the South, mid-Atlantic and Midwest, and in the low 90s in the Southeast and Tennessee Valley.

The heat of the past several days has been blamed for at least 46 deaths across the country, including deaths in Illinois, Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

To stay cool, Americans tried familiar solutions -- dipping into the pool and going to the movies and riding subways just to be in air conditioning.
