After 5 days of scorching heat, what comes next? Another day in the 90’s! That’s right. Today will mark the 6th consecutive day of 90 degree heat on Delmarva. The mercury reached 99.7 degrees at 2 PM yesterday at my weather station. Highs on Delmarva ranged from 94 to 100 degrees. It should be somewhat cooler today, but hot is hot!
Relief from the sweltering heat is finally in sight. Independence Day will see temperatures flirt with the upper 80’s to near 90. Thursday will as well. A cold front will sweep through the area on Friday leading to showers and thunderstorms overnight. Saturday will feel chilly compared to the recent heat.
