Get ready for a stormy, steamy stretch of days.
So far this year, the temperature topped 82 only once, hitting the year’s high of 89 on April 16.
Starting today, a half-dozen straight days could see the mid 80s or more, and Memorial Day and Tuesday both have shots at 90.
Humidity will be summerlike as well, with showers and thunderstorms a threat today, Saturday and Sunday.
So lots of air-conditioners are likely to be cranking.
Especially in cars. More than 400,000 area residents expect to travel at least 50 miles, about the same as last year, according to AAA Mid-Atlantic.
