BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Many of the heat advisories across the state have been canceled as storms rolled through Saturday afternoon.
The heat advisory is still in effect until 7 p.m. for Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s Counties, and until 8 p.m. for Dorchester, Inland Worcester, Somerset, and Wicomico counties.
The National Weather Service says peak heat temperatures are expected during the afternoon hours Saturday, but some locations near the coast may see indicators peak by late morning through early afternoon.
Meg McNamara says there’s also a chance for showers on Sunday, along with some thunderstorm activity.
Baltimore Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen has issued a code red heat advisory for Baltimore City through Sunday, July 23, as the heat index is expected to be between 101 and 104 degrees.
A code red alert is declared when heat is “severe enough to present a substantial threat to the life or health of vulnerable Baltimore citizens.”
