Heat Advisory Issued For Much Of Maryland Today; First Of Season

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A heat advisory will go into effect at noon for a large portion of the state.

The heat advisory has been issued for Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Calvert, Howard, Montgomery, Charles, Prince George’s, Harford, and St. Mary’s Counties, along with Baltimore City, from noon until 8 p.m.

Heat indexes are expected to be in the 90s, and could even reach the 100s, and we could see record high temperatures.

“Heat is a silent killer and a public health threat, particularly for the young, the elderly and those in our city who are the most vulnerable,” said Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen. “With tomorrow’s extreme heat expected, it is important for all residents to protect against hyperthermia and dehydration. Please be cautious and remember to stay cool and hydrated.”
