It has been consistently warm around here lately. So far this month, every day has been at or above average. And for the month, we are averaging 90.8 degrees for our high – about 4 degrees above normal. This heat is going to intensify the next few days before we get a break later this week.
The temperatures are expected to be so high Wednesday that Baltimore City and Baltimore County schools have already announced they’re closing early. The heat has already turned deadly in Maryland.
After tying the all-time May record of 98 degrees yesterday, we are on our way back up again today. At 2 p.m., it’s already 95 degrees outside. And we are still climbing. The record for today is 96 degrees. We will likely break that record and may even come close to yesterday’s 98 degrees. When you factor in the high dewpoints/humidity, it will feel more like the low 100s outside.
A lot of people say they’re used to Memorial Day rainouts, but this year Mother Nature rolled out the heat.
