Hotter than hot

CHESTERTOWN — It was a Severe Weather Alert weekend in Kent County and the rest of Maryland, with temperatures reaching triple digits in some areas on Saturday.

Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport hit a temperature of 101 degrees, shattering the 100-degree record set in 1988.

Gov. Wes Moore on Thursday, June 20 signed a State of Preparedness declaration ahead of the potentially hazardous heat wave with dangerously high temperatures.

According to the National Weather Service, record high temperatures are expected through Sunday, with increasing humidity during that time, which requires heightened awareness and preparedness from Marylanders and those visiting the state.
