BREAKING: Strong storms set to move through the Northeast

Strong storms set to move through the Northeast: 
As we have seen multiple times this summer, during the middle of this week thunderstorms will fire on the northern rim of heat from the northern Plains to northern New England.
Wednesday, the area at risk from the storms will span North Dakota eastward to northern upstate New York and Maine.
While storms in the northern Plains are not expected to be severe, cities in the path of the severe storms include Montreal, Quebec, Plattsburgh, N.Y., Burlington, Vt., and Caribou, Maine.
The greatest risks from the storms will be localized damaging wind gusts and frequent lightning strikes.

Our mid-July heat wave gets a little worse today with code orange air quality. I don’t want to over-dramatize the heat and humidity – it’s the kind of stuff we see at some point almost every summer, and sometimes worse. But the timing is just plain cruel for those of you in Prince George’s County affected by the water outage. And it’s worth reminding everyone to stay hydrated and, if you have to be outside, to take breaks indoors in the air conditioning. The heat relents by the second half of the weekend.
