It's our annual summertime special where we turn up the sizzle. We'll learn how much hotter it really gets in the city versus the suburbs, and we'll ask why the District's official temperature isn't actually recorded in the District. Plus, we'll hear how an influx of kids from Central America is turning up the heat for local schools and nonprofits.  And we'll visit a Virginia eatery where spice is the name of the game.
