Heat returns to the Salisbury area today as temperatures reach the low 90’s under partly cloudy skies. The humidity will make for an uncomfortable day.
Temperatures will retreat into the low to mid 80’s over the next few days during an anticipated period of dry weather brought to us by the extraordinary Ring of Fire that also steered Hurricane Hilary into the Southwest United States. Currently no rain is expected on Delmarva until next weekend at the earliest.
Hot and humid today with highs in the low to mid 90s. Turning cooler tomorrow through midweek. Get more information at https://t.co/8jefKEwKEy. Have a great day, everyone! #vawx #ncwx #mdwx pic.twitter.com/f58JRb7Rio
