BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The WJZ First Alert Weather Team is getting you ready for the Preakness.

And that’s a good thing because we’ve declared Saturday an Alert Day due to an intense combination of heat and humidity we’ll be dealing with throughout the day.

We’re talking about temperatures in the mid 90s, which will be the first time we’ve seen them soar that high since last August.

 

The forecast calls for an afternoon high of 95 in Baltimore, just shy of a record of 96 degrees set back in 1934.

This is an area of concern, especially for those spending time outdoors, because of heat-related illness. With the humidity in place, the heat index will be near 100 degrees.

Given that triple-digit heat, it’s so important to stay hydrated when you’re outside and to take breaks either in the shade or an air-conditioned space indoors if possible.

A couple other tips? Wear light, loose-fitting clothes if you can. And if you’re feeling overheated, try placing cold water or ice on your wrists or neck to cool down.

The bottom line? You don’t want to spend an extended amount of time outside if you can avoid it. And if you are outdoors, it’s recommended that you drink plenty of water.

As for the Preakness Stakes, we’re looking at hot and sticky weather with roughly 91-degree temperatures at post time, which is about 7:01 p.m.

“I did my best getting behind the lads, I was talking, but it didn’t feel right, I didn’t like it.

“At 29-years-old, I want to be playing football.”
