Special Weather Statement
Issued: 5:00 PM Jul. 14, 2024 – National Weather Service
...HOT TEMPERATURES EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON...

High air temperatures in the upper 90s coupled with higher
humidity along the waters of the Tidal Potomac and Chesapeake Bay
are resulting in localized heat indices of around 100 to 105
degrees. The potential for showers and thunderstorms exists this
afternoon, which would cool the air temperatures.

Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this
situation. Be prepared to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives
and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
