Hot and humid conditions continue to pour into the region this morning, with dew points early this morning in the upper 60s. Dew points will reach 73-75 by this evening as southwesterly flow continues. The heat and humidity will be the biggest story through the weekend.
As the humidity continues to increase, warm advection may allow for a few spotty showers or storms this morning across the region (leftovers from storms across central PA), but much of the day will be dry with increasing humidity. As an upper level ridge strengthens across the central US, bulging toward the east, a few upper level disturbances will cascade across PA/NY this weekend. This will spark a few spotty thunderstorms during the late afternoon, but it will not be a washout by any means. Highs today will reach the lower 90s.READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Severe Storm Threat and Flood Alert Prompts Alert Day Saturday
Sunday looks like the hottest day of the weekend and of the next 7 days with most places into the middle 90s. A cold front will move through the Great Lakes this day, with a few spotty storms possible across western MD. The BWI metro and adjacent MD area look dry at this time. Humidity will be oppressive, with dew points into the lower to middle 70s and RealFeels approaching 105-110!READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Severe Storm Threat Prompts Alert Day Saturday
The cold front will pass through the region Monday, with a shower or thunderstorm. Temperatures will once again get into the lower 90s, but thunderstorms may prevent this much warmth. We will have to keep an eye on convection Sunday night and how that impacts cloud cover Monday.MORE NEWS: Baltimore Police Stepping Up Deployment On Fourth Of July Weekend, Commissioner Says
Dew points will lower Tuesday, but the airmass behind the front will still be warm, with temperatures again into the upper 80s for most. The boundary will stall south of the region, so we will have to be wary of showers and thunderstorms through mid week. As of now, it appears Tuesday may be dry as things stay south, but the boundary may move northward again Wednesday, bringing that chance of storms. Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s to near 90 through the end of the week-typical for mid July.
