The Heat Continues

Hot summer temperatures will spike this weekend, followed by a cooling trend, of sorts, next week.

Humidity levels will also jump up through the weekend so discomfort levels will be quite high.

The record high temperature for Baltimore for Friday is 102 degrees (1991) and probably will not be tied or broken but Saturday’s record high of 97 degrees(1987) could very well be met or exceeded. Sunday’s record high of 99 degrees (1934) is probably safe but it might be close.

By Sunday, temperature and humidity levels will begin to drop off a little but it looks like afternoon highs next week will remain above the seasonal average, which is in the upper 80s.

The tropics are active and Tropical Depression 3 has developed in the Atlantic.

The storm is expected to strengthen to Tropical Storm force and would be named Bonnie.

The projected track takes the storm into the warm Gulf of Mexico waters and toward the northern Gulf coast by the weekend.

  1. Does this very hot summer have anything to do with the El Nino? If so how long do you think this is going to last. Will August possibly be a little more comfortable? This has been a very unusal summer. Thank you for all your infomation and keeping us up on the weather.
