At 11 a.m., we were already at 94 degrees.  Last time we hit 100 degrees was July 29 last year.

We officially hit 98 degrees yesterday afternoon.  We will make another run at the record of 100 degrees again this afternoon.  Even if it doesn’t hit the triple digits, it will feel that way outside.  The high humidity/dewpoints continue, making it feel like 100-105 degrees this afternoon.

There is the slight chance for a thunderstorm later on today, but those chances increase tomorrow as a cold front moves across Maryland.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms may become strong to even severe.  The Storm Prediction Center has the Baltimore metro region in a slight risk (tier 1 of a 3 tier system) for severe thunderstorms.  If any watches or warnings are issued, we will pass those along immediately.

Even with a cold front swinging through, it will still be hot and muggy tomorrow – just not as hot as today.  We are expecting highs in the low/mid 90s with the high humidity/dewpoints to continue until the front passes.  Highs drop back to the upper 80s/near 90 over the weekend before another cold front comes through on Monday.  There will be clouds and the chance for showers with that front, then much cooler and more refreshing air following it for the middle of next week.  Temperatures will go from way above average (currently 85 degrees) to below average.

In the tropics:

We now have our first hurricane of the Atlantic season.  At 11 a.m., tropical storm Chris was upgraded to a hurricane.  It is far out in the northern Atlantic and moving away from the United States.  Of more concern is still the area of disturbed weather west of Cuba that could become Debby.
