PM Update: Relief is in the air and more is coming
Below average temps through the end of work week
The end of the current heat wave is here as a cold front swings to our south and east. So far, we are not feeling too much cool air, but the drier air is quickly making inroads. Though today is our last 90+ day for at least a few, it helped cement this June as the warmest on record by tying 1943 for most such occurrences in June with 18. The next several days are going to be about as awesome as you'll see around here heading into the heart of summer.
Through Tonight: Grab a sidewalk dinner and open up the windows to let some fresh air in -- it's probably been a while. Temperatures stay in the mild low-to-mid 80s through evening, but they should drop off pretty nicely once the sun sets thanks to dwindling humidity. Lows reach the low-to-mid 60s most spots as a light wind from the north blows by.
Tomorrow (Wednesday): Ahh, payback for 11 days in a row above 90! Sunshine and some fair-weather cumulus clouds join up with a light wind from the north and temperatures rising only to right around 80 or just above. Dew points likely to fall into the 40s are almost unheard of this time of year and will ensure that humidity is on no ones mind.
Hot as: A kiln, apparently. Frederick County Fire Marshal Marc McNeal said a plant that spontaneously combusted was responsible for a fire on Sunday when the temperature neared 100 degress across the area. Since the summer is still young, might it be worth issuing spontaneous combustion warnings next time we see similar temperatures?
