Thursday Jul 20th, 2017
Baltimore City health officials issued a Code Red heat advisory through Artscape weekend.
The heat and high humidity will make it feel like it is 105.
WBAL meteorologist Ava Marie says the extreme heat will remain through Monday.
“Heat is a silent killer and a public health threat, particularly for the young, the elderly and those in our city who are the most vulnerable,” health commissioner Dr. Leana Wen said in a statement. “As Baltimore prepares for a fun weekend with one of the nation’s largest free arts festivals, it is important for all residents to protect against hyperthermia and dehydration. Please be cautious and remember to stay cool and hydrated.”
