Hot Today But Cooling Then End Of Week Storm

Hot Today But Cooling Then End Of Week Storm

Sunday June 12 – We just had our hottest day of the year with Saturday’s high in Baltimore reaching 96°F, well above the daily average of 82°F. The record was 99°F set in 1911. The severe storms never materialized as the atmosphere was capped and strong southwesterly winds provided more dry air rather than trigger any severe weather. There will be a cooler air mass moving in, but today will remain on the hot side at temperatures should get close to 90°F for many. Winds however will kick up with gusts over 30 mph as the new air mass moves in. While most of the week ahead will be dry, the long range outlook suggests a rather unique set up next weekend. A stormy pattern will try to develop on Thursday, but when the core element reaches the coast, it is projected to flare up and turn back inland. That should bring much cooler air next weekend and keep us on the edge of the system.  See the maps below.

First the temperatures…

Quick Announcement About My 3rd Trek Across Maryland

Trek3_Logo_Final Small

On August 7th I will be embarking on my 3rd trek across Maryland for Cool Kids Campaign. This is a 325 mile hike and bike from the summit of Wisp to the Inlet of Ocean City over 7 days. When I was 14 years old I almost lost my leg, but recovered and went back to playing sports. I do this to inspire kids battling cancer today and share their stories.  I am looking for fun and ambitious people to join my team. You can do a single day, the whole week, or provide your own team. There is also a big opportunity for box partners to pledge and get large media exposure in return. Please see this link and contact Victoria at Cool Kids Campaign to signup. The trek route and more about my story is on my trek page.

 

 


Potential Stormy Pattern Next Weekend

Considering the bust for storms Saturday, I understand the lack of confidence looking to the end of the week. This is a very unique pattern and I just want to introduce the potential. I am sure the calculations will adjust how this develops, but it is worth watching as we progress through the week.
