Pretty impressive early June heat wave "meteorologically."
For reference, BWI hit at least 99 earlier this afternoon, beating the old record high of 97 set back in 1999.
Tomorrow, the forecast trend indicates probably at least +2 degrees, or 100F. That would smash tomorrow's old record high temp of 98 set back in 1933. We'll obviously have another Heat Advisory for Thursday and probably Friday, and maybe even a excessive heat *warning.* Stay tuned....
BLOG: We knew we couldn't dodge the bullet for long, and so starting Wednesday, Maryland goes into the furnace right along with most of the rest of the country.
A heat advisory will go into effect officially at Noon and last through 8pm on Wednesday. That advisory will likely be repeated, if not upgraded to a heat warning, on Thursday and even Friday.
With luck, a more moderate airmass should move into Maryland for the weekend, dropping us back down into the 80s.
Take a look at the video link above for a pretty interesting look at how this early June heatwave has been impacting communities all over the nation, and by the way, I want to get one of those "cool cop" blowers for my truck!
