Well did you think Summer was over after the pleasant weather of the last 2 days. Not so fast as the heat and humidity make a huge comeback heading toward the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The "Big Bubble" of no trouble will continue to rule our weather pattern as it slowly drifts east opening the door for southwesterly breezes to drag in rich Gulf of Mexico air. High temperatures on Sunday will be near 90 degrees then above that mark Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday should be the hottest day with some locations approaching 100 degrees. Humidity will also be on the increase making those 90 degree temperatures feel more like 100-110 degrees come Tuesday and Wednesday.
The mini heat wave looks to break by the end of the workweek with scattered showers and storms returning to the forecast. Long term trends remain above average on temperature and precipitation so it looks as if Summer is not done yet. So don't put away those shorts, tees, and sunglasses just yet even though a few more fall teases look to occur there is still plenty of beach time to be had.
With all that said here are some heat precautions for those who may be outdoors at the beach or maybe even the Maryland State Fair this week ahead.
If your working outside take plenty of breaks and drink plenty of water. Avoid strenuous activity during peak heating hours and don't forget top check on those elderly friends and neighbors. Most of all any activity outside this time of year requires sunblock or sun protection from some sort of clothing.
Also "Look Before You Lock!!" Yes we live busy lives but it's easy to look in the backseat to see if you left anything behind. A temperature outside of 80 degrees can lead to temps above 100 degrees within 30 minutes inside a closed up car. Even though we are heading into late Summer you can still get burned. Avoid the burn and lather on SPF as Summer is here to stay for now.
