Heat in 90s to last through weekend -- again

The Baltimore area is in for a sixth day in the 90s, and there is still no end to the heat in sight -- with nearly 250,000 people sweltering without power.

Highs reached 95 degrees and 97 degrees Saturday and Sunday at BWI Marshall Airport, and temperatures were poised to hit 90 early Monday afternoon at BWI.

Highs have remained in the 90s (and the 100s on June 29) since June 27, and are forecast to continue to through at least July 7, a span of 11 days, according to the National Weather Service.

Highs are forecast in the low- to mid-90s early this week, again rising to the upper 90s by Friday and through Sunday.

The longest stretch of highs above 90 at BWI is 25 days, set in July and August 1995. A nine-day stretch in the 90s would rank in the top-40 longest spans of 90-degree weather in Baltimore, according to weather service data.

A stretch last summer neared record lengths: Highs were in the 90s and above for 17 days straight through Aug. 2. There were a handful of heat stretches lasting five days or fewer.
