First Heat Wave of Season Likely for Delmarva

A heat wave will reach the Delmarva Peninsula by Thursday of this week and last into the weekend.

A heat wave for Mid-Atlantic standards is defined as three consecutive days or more with temperatures at or above 90 degrees. Here’s a look at the local Delmarva forecast.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny & warm w/ low humidity. Highs 83-88

Thursday: Sunny, hot, and more humid. Highs 90-95. Heat Index 95-99.

Friday: Mostly sunny, hot, and humid. Highs 90-95. Heat Index 96-102.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, hot, and very sticky. Late T-storm. Highs 89-94. Heat Index 95-101.

Here are some tips in order to beat the heat:

Heat index values will approach 100 degrees at times and create dangerous conditions especially for those without A/C and those who are elderly and/or homeless. Even though this doesn’t look like a major heat wave, it is the first one of the season and could catch some off-guard. So be sure stay as cool as you can, stay hydrated, and maybe head to the beach to get some relief.
