Maryland Weather Alert: Extreme Heat to Hit Mid-Atlantic Region

An intense heat wave is making its way across the mid-Atlantic region, directly impacting Maryland, and officials are warning residents and visitors to remain cool and hydrated today and Thursday. Emergency officials advise that people should limit time outdoors if possible as the temperature rises from late morning Wednesday through Thursday evening.

Residents are also encouraged to drink fluids, stay in air-conditioned rooms and avoid outdoor work. The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory and says temperatures will be in the mid- to upper 90s with heat index values well above 100 degrees.

As always, if I can be of assistance to you or your family, please let me know.
