Meanwhile, in Baltimore City, all public schools will be dismissed three hours early due to the forecasted heat. Half-day pre-K programs and all after-school activities are canceled for the day. Baltimore County Public Schools’ announcement comes on the heels of a newly enacted heat policy that states that schools that do not yet have air conditioning will be closed if the heat index is expected to reach 90 degrees.

Baltimore is not under any heat alerts, but Heat Advisories have been issued for the New York and Philadelphia metro areas as high temperatures will warm well into the 90s. Heat index values will blaze in the triple digits.
