Not to be all Captain Obvious about it, but it sure is hot out there right now. In fact, right now, well past the supposedly maximum heat of midday, weather.com is reporting a temperature of 90 degrees at BWI, the region's official measurement station. It's a safe bet that it's a good two or three degrees warmer in the city, which puts us very close to this date's record high temp of 97 degrees in 1964. If we did indeed top out above 97 degrees today, that would make it the third record-breaking day in a row.
Oh, and summer doesn't officially begin for another 11 days.
