The cleanup continues, and so does the heat.
This was the fifth straight day with temperatures at 90 degrees or higher. Our high so far Sunday has been 97 degrees. The dewpoints have dropped somewhat since Sunday morning, but they still bring the heat index a degree or two higher.
For the entire upcoming week, we have highs forecast in the 90s or higher. We may even make a run at 100 again on Wednesday the 4th. The other thing that is almost a constant in the forecast is the chance for a late-day thunderstorm.
The stalled front is slowly drifting off to the south. It has prompted another round of severe thunderstorms over the Carolinas. That front will wash out just as another one moves our way. There is a large cluster of severe storms over Ohio and Kentucky, and they are moving our way. It’s looking like we will get a round of thunderstorms from it closer to or after the 11:00 show. Of course we will have the latest on Eyewitness News at 11.
Even when that cluster of thunderstorms leaves us, we remain in this same pattern. There is the chance for a thunderstorm again Monday afternoon and then Tuesday afternoon. A new front will move our way with an increased chance for thunderstorms again on Wednesday.
SEVERE T-STORM WATCH in effect for Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties through 2 a.m. The cluster of severe thunderstorms coming out of Ohio and Kentucky is still looking strong as it moves into Maryland. This will spread across the state overnight. Gusty winds are likely with these thunderstorms.
