Do you miss Winter yet? You know, the crisp air, the cold sting when you step outside, or the sight of your warmth breath condensing in the chilly air. Keep those cold thoughts in mind for the next 2 days. Monday and Tuesday will be in the mid 90s with the muggy feeling all around. It makes you feel like 98 degrees! You might actually feel like a hot dog on a BBQ grill (or maybe it's warm brownies in the oven or buffalo chicken in the air fryer). Anyway you look at it, it's going to be HOT. Not toasty enough for an Excessive Heat Warning (that would have to be 100 or higher). Beginning Wednesday morning, showers move through and drop the temperature. However, the high humidity stays leading to storm chances all the way thru Sunday. Thus, by the weekend you start feeling more like a wet noodle.
PS... In case you are wondering what is up with all the food talk, we just had a cooking competition at WMAR ABC-2. Everyone who works the Sunday shift brought in dishes and after a taste test the winner was announced. We had buffalo bread, pigs in a blanket, quinoa salad, chicken salad sandwiches, bacon on celery, caramel grapes and brownies. The winner was the bacon on cheesy celery. So if you have a food contest at work or with your neighbors, you may take home the gold with a bacon vegetable dish.
