Tuesday Aug 28th, 2018
Temperatures may climb into the upper 90s in Charm City on Tuesday and feel like the triple digits for most of the afternoon. Wednesday is expected to be just as hot, if not hotter.
Baltimore Health Commissioner Leana Wen issued a code red extreme heat alert for Tuesday, Aug. 28, and Wednesday, Aug. 29. The alert means that the heat is severe enough to threaten the life or health of vulnerable residents, and people may need to use caution if they are outdoors.
