Yes, it is hot right off the bat again, as Salisbury wakes up to a muggy 78 degrees.
We really should not be surprised, as this week in July is historically the hottest time of the year on Delmarva.
The hot weather coincides with Major League Baseball’s Home Run Derby last night and its All-Star Game tonight in Denver, where it is also hot.
The vast majority of bats used in MLB are manufactured in Louisville, Kentucky where the Louisville Slugger Museum, pictured above, is a hot tourist attraction. The weather there is hot as well.
Oppressive low to mid 90’s temperatures are expected again today, and tomorrow, and the next day, and….well, you get the picture.
In keeping with the baseball theme, we’d love a rain delay today, but we’re unlikely to get one.
Good morning! Today will be another hot day with temps in the lower to mid 90s and heat indices in the upper 90s to lower 100s. Remember to drink plenty of water if you are outside and never leave kids or pets unattended in vehicles. #vawx #ncwx #mdwx pic.twitter.com/t55QCe7Vvm
