Friday July 31 2020
This is going to go down as the hottest month on record for Baltimore and many other locations. But we end the month today with a refreshing rain and much cooler air. Rain will be moderate at times, as intermittent showers will continue into the afternoon, then gradually end from north to south.
This weekend remains somewhat humid so showers and storms remain a risk. The main focus will be shifting to Hurricane Isaias. Winds are up to 80 mph this morning and the track takes it up the east coast early next week. See more below.
