Wednesday August 11 2021

Today we crank up the heat to what my be the highest marks so far this summer. We have a chance to match the record high temperature today.

Much like the last few days, strong to severe storms will erupt, and the added fuel may make these exceptionally dangerous. We look to the weekend for the first break. 

Heat Advisory and Excessive Heat Warning

Heat Index Values will range from 105ºF to 115º




Morning Surface Weather

High Pressure is in control allowing this dangerous heat to build. There are still subtle boundaries that will allow for the development of strong to severe thunderstorms after 2 PM. This begin west of Baltimore and Washington, on one again along the Maryland Trek route.  Then will cross the metro areas and should be paid attention to. 

We have a large support team that will take even measure to ensure the safety of our team. Please consider your outdoor time relative to your ability to stay cool.

Sunshine State Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
