July Begins With A Heat Advisory Low Air Quality And Parade In Sykesville

July Begins With A Heat Advisory Low Air Quality And Parade In Sykesville

July 1 2018

Welcome to a new month and what appears to be a new weather pattern. We are in the middle of a het wave that may actually peak Monday, but last into most of next week.  This comes along with some alerts you should be aware of: Code Orange air quality may actually be worse tomorrow when pollution builds at the start of the work week.  But the high temperatures and heat index over 100ºF has prompted a Heat Advisory for much of the area.

Record High: 103ºF in 1901

Heat Advisory: The high temperatures will be in the upper 90s, but downtown Baltimore could hit 100ºF. The heat index however, what it feels like will be over 100ºF, making it dangerous to be outside without proper hydration.  At 2 PM, Shannon and I will be leading the Let Freedom Ring Parade in Sykesville. We will ride in on a fire truck and then call the parade, hopefully in the shade. I recommend if you join us or whatever your plans… bring plenty of water.  I will ask, but I am not sure the fire trucks will hose you down.

Please consider your pets and don’t leave them outside too long without shade or water.  Also, check on the kids and elderly frequently for how they feel.  Notice that the first sign of heat exhaustion is often slurred speech…

Temperature Outlook

This is from the GFS Model and it has trended too hot.  But, it is showing two things I want to pass along

  1. The peak of the heat wave may be Monday.
  2. Heat waves tend to last longer than first suggested, and this shows us in the 90s through the end of the week.

I do agree with the heat spiking on Friday ahead of the next cold front. Our next chance of wide spread rain will be Friday into Saturday.
