BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The calendar may say fall, but the mercury in the thermometer will likely stay at summer-like levels for the next few days.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration expects much of the United States, from Texas to Connecticut, to see well-above-average temperatures for the next six to 10 days. All of Maryland is included in that category.
Baltimore can expect to see temperatures five to 15 degrees above average during that period.

While the eastern two-thirds of the country will sweat it out as summer turns to fall, the west coast is expected to see well-below-average temperatures.
Baltimore hit a high temperature Monday of 95 degrees, nearly 20 degrees above average. That heat prompted Baltimore City Schools to release students early at dozens of schools without air conditioning.
