Hot weather returns

August 11, 1999

The hot, 90-degree temperatures that wilted Hagerstown through much of July and three days this month have returned and are expected to remain through Sunday, the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va., said Wednesday.

Temperatures Monday and Tuesday were in the 80s, but on Wednesday the mercury jumped to 94 degrees.

It was only the third time this month that temperatures had hit or exceeded the 90-degree mark, according to Hagerstown Weather Observer Greg Keefer's Web site.

On Aug. 4 and 6 temperatures reached 91 degrees.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service are predicting a high of 90 degrees today with partly sunny skies.

Friday is expected to be partly sunny with a chance of a thunderstorm, with highs 90 to 95 degrees.

Saturday and Sunday will be mostly sunny with highs of 95 degrees, the Weather Service said.
