What a difference! The front that moved into Maryland yesterday has slowed down significantly, and is still draped along I-95 this evening.
Severe thunderstorm watch in effect from Frederick County east to the Atlantic through 9 PM. Numerous severe thunderstorm warnings are following the strong line of thunderstorms as it crosses the state.
Wow! What a swing. We hit a record high of 104 degrees Wednesday afternoon. Saturday we set another record. This time, it was a record low maximum of 69 degrees. The old one was 73 degrees.
The heat has arrived, once again. We started our next heat wave today. Our high hit 95 degrees at BWI-Marshall this afternoon. We will only drop to the mid 70s overnight before going right back up to the mid 90s again tomorrow.
We got a break from the heat, but it’s on its way back.
Needed showers, then heat to return. A warm front is slowly approaching the state. That front is responsible for the clouds and spotty rain/showers that have broken out today.
We did it yet again. We hit 100 degrees Sunday afternoon. That ties the old record from 1993, and makes this the 12th straight day of 90+ degree days. That stretch also includes three days at 100+ degrees.
We did it. We topped out at 103 degrees, breaking the old record of 101 degrees from 2010. That makes this the 11th straight day of 90 degree+ temperatures. We are looking to tack one more day on to that total before we get some relief Monday.
Five days after a wicked windstorm walloped Maryland, thousands remain in the dark. Hundreds of BGE crews are working to restore power but patience is wearing thin.
The manager of a Cumberland rescue mission says it will be closed for at least three months after strong winds ripped the roof off the building.
Anne Arundel County was also hit hard by the storm.
The cleanup continues, and so does the heat. This was the fifth straight day with temperatures at 90 degrees or higher.
