Heat Wave About To Break!

This should be the last day of this stretch.
The last Heat Advisory.
The last Code Red Ozone Alert.

Guess what? We have not set or even tied any records here in Baltimore with this heat wave. Today- we do have a shot, as a cold front approaches with the final surge of warm air ahead of it. The record we are aiming for is 97F set back in 1964. The bigger story will be the potential for severe storms this evening as the cold front will bring this heat wave to an end. Wednesday's temperatures will be about 10 degrees colder. Honestly though, this is all part of the high amplitude jet which was also responsible for the very cool and wet May. The huge ridge in the east is contrasted with an equally huge trough in the west. Seattle just experienced their coldest June week on record. Their nearby Cascade Mountains are under a Heavy Snow Warning today. A general 6 inches of fluff is expected with up to 1 foot in the higher elevations. Doesn't that sound nice today?
