Excessive Heat Warning Likely on Thursday

Record Heat at Dulles Airport Today

Dulles Airport set a record high today of 99 degrees breaking the old record of 97 degrees set in 2010.

Thursday Hottest Day of Summer Thus Far

The Heat Index forecast below shows the real-feel temperatures nearing 110 across the interstate 95 corridor, flirting with the criteria for an Excessive Heat Warning.

Thunderstorms will be more widely scattered tomorrow afternoon as a ridge of high pressure off of the Atlantic coast builds into our region.  Still a few storms that do form during the peak heating of the afternoon and evening could easily reach severe limits with damaging winds being the primary threat.
