HAGERSTOWN - With a high temperature of 94 degrees, Tuesday matched June 8 as the month's hottest day in Hagerstown, according to a local weather observer.

Tuesday's high was recorded at 4:27 p.m., according to, a Web site maintained by Greg Keefer.

Temperatures today could reach 92 degrees, Accuweather meteorologist Chris Beatty said.

A cold front moving in Thursday might bring some "run-of-the-mill summertime thunderstorms" late Thursday into Friday, Beatty said. Washington County residents could expect about half an inch of rain in spots, he said.

So far this month, 2.77 inches of rain have fallen in Hagerstown, according to Keefer's site.

Any unpleasant weather should clear out and make way for a nice, 70-degree weekend with low humidity, Beatty said.

Craig Bathgate works in Hagerstown and doesn't care much for the warm weather he said Tuesday as he walked downtown wearing shorts and a short-sleeve, button-up shirt.

Bathgate said he is more of a 70-degree guy.


The Fourth of July holiday should be clear with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees, Beatty said.
