July 18 2019

This morning we are still sorting through the numerous weather related storm damage reports. There was a lot yesterday and reaching 98ºF at BWI was the fuel. Today we get a little break from the high heat, but still like to hit the lower 90s. Friday through this weekend, we will be back under the heat dome! As a result, an Excessive Heat Watch has been issued for Friday through Sunday. Heat Index Values will be between 105ºF to 115ºF.

But wait! There is hope for a dramatic change next week with temperatures back below average. See more below.
