The HEAT CONTINUES

Two days of consecutive record heat with highs once again today near 100 degrees. So far that makes 45 days of 90 degrees or better in Baltimore for 2019 so the big question of course is if we can rival the 59 days of 2010.

The heat continues Tuesday and extends all the way until Thursday before a powerful cold frontal boundary rolls into the area. Prior to the arrival of that front temperatures will remain hot and the humidity will remain oppressive fueling late day severe storms.

Currently a "Marginal Risk" for severe weather is in place Tuesday for much of Central Maryland and then again Wednesday as several rounds of storms roll our way from the Ohio River Valley. These storms look to pack a punch with damaging winds, hail, heavy rain, and lots of lightning. Not everyone will see the storms with the highest of chances coming on Thursday as the front sweeps on through.

Once the front comes through the humidity will drop drastically as we head into Friday and Saturday. A stray shower will be leftover on both days with highs around 80 degrees. Saturday will be the better day for clearing before full on sunshine Sunday with highs still sitting at seasonable levels.
