Thursday July 13

Today will be the peak of our heat. The combination of the highest temperature and dew points will result in Heat Index values over 100ºF this afternoon. The prime area for the Heat Advisory will be along I-95, metro Baltimore/Washington/Philadelphia, and southward through southern Maryland and Delmarva. The risk of heat exhaustion is increased so limiting exposure outdoors and drinking plenty of water is the best advice. also make sure to check frequently on kids, pets, and neighbors. Especially the elderly that may have compromised immune systems. See the severe storm risk below.

  • Average High = 88ºF
  • Record High = 99ºF in 1966
