It’s the heat…and the humidity


That pink area of death is both where D.C. and Baltimore are located, and where the cities' residents wish they were not. The Weather Channel.

The entire East Coast and South regions of the United States are gripped in a heat wave. Two of the hottest places: D.C. and Baltimore.

Both sweltering cities are scheduled for a high of 95 degrees Tuesday. Thats a hotter forecast than every majorish city but Charleston, W.Va. (99), Charlotte (98), Raleigh, N.C., (97), and Richmond (99) according to Accuweather. There are a few others at 95 degrees as well, but New Orleans, Houston, Miami, Orlando, Atlanta and Memphis are all projected to be cooler, if only by a degree or too.

Yesterday BWI set a record at 98 degrees; Reagan was 2 degrees off at 96. Weather.com said yesterday’s high in D.C. city was 97.

An earlier piece concluded that D.C. has brutal summers, but not the most brutal. I stand by it. It’s still may.
