they were just slightly lower. today they've gone back up. the moisture back added to the forecast. we're looking at temperatures going up to about 103. this is how we get there. right now we have relative humidity at 84%. the wind is coming in, the air is coming in from the southwest bringing some very, very warm conditions. right now we have 65 in oakland, 69 cumberland, 77 in elkin and in ocean city, 82 in the nation's capitol, around the immediate area the low 70s to 80. 76 columbia, 77 westminster, 80 rock hall, 83 annapolis and kent island. we talk about it being cooler near the water. believe it or not, the bay temperatures almost around 82 in some parts 83 already. those temperatures are just reflecting what the water temperature is around annapolis. oakland right now the heat index
really not a factor. we're going to continue to keep you posted on this. the heat index even at the hour is close to the temperature and it's going to start kicking in and souring. our winds are coming in from the southwest. that's going to continue through out the day. there's nothing stopping the heat pump that's moving all that air in. high pressure is in control of our forecast early on. this is our -- we'll call it the adjuster. it's a front that's going to be pushing through the region starting tonight into tomorrow afternoon. now, there are two sides to this. one is that the front comes through, brings less humid air and cooler conditions. it starts to push that hot, humid air out of here. the biggest problem is you can't get to 103 and into the 80s by next week without a bit of a transition. that transition could mean some thunderstorms again some gusty. we're talking tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow night. it could be a bit of a go.
we'll keep you posted on that. sunset today at 8:35. south winds on the bay at 5 to 10. today going up to 103, the record is 101 set back in 2010. the heat index around 110 degrees. 77 tonight, potential thunderstorms. that stays with us through tomorrow. tomorrow is the day we're going to be paying attention to it. it will be with us through the afternoon into the evening. 86 on monday. 84, 84 and 84 on tuesday, wednesday with and thursday with lows down in the 60s. the end is in sight. still ahead on wjz eyewitness's news saturday morning. toddlers forced to fight. wait until you hear who police say is holding the camera. >> a shocking crash caught on tape. what happened and the latest on the victim. >> first here are last night's maryland lottery numbers. we're taking a break but coming right

protect drivers. they change too frequently. the only plan of protection for drivers on the bridge during wicked weather are signs alerting them of the conditions. during really dangerous storms, the transportation authority can temporarily close the bridge. >> shutting the bridge down prematurely also has implications. >> on monday it will begin an indepth review of what happened during last week's storm and how to improve its warning system on the bay bridge. >> at this point the maryland transportation authority says it's looking into purchasing a realtime weather system, but even that device will only track winds at the bridge and not those off in the distance headed that way. remember wjz 13 is always on for you. check in with first warning weather coverage and for constant updates in the forecast when you need it, go to wjz.com. a local man is sentenced to

state level but voted down. another day of hot temperatures. >> time to get in the pool. >> time to get in the pool, absolutely. we have cooler air in our sights now. the problem is going to be the transition getting from one with to the other. we have to get through the heat today, get through storms tomorrow and then the pay off. >> soon there will be snow on the ground. >> it won't be long before we're sitting here saying that. >> no, no, no. >> i know. you know, it's going to be a very warm day today, near record high temperatures if not above record highs. 76 our temperature, 71 the dew point. yesterday we got a break although it was very hot. today the southwest wind is going to be the problem for us. we are going to be dealing with the winds been pumped in the air around high pressure that is going to continue with us at least for one more day. 76 right now at bwi, 77 ocean
city, 72 oakland and cumberland, 82 in dc, 81 already in rock hall, 73 annapolis and on kent island. typically the temperatures around the cities near the water a little cooler than the rest of us until you factor in that the bay temperature is almost 83. there you have it, they're reflecting the waters in the bay. the heat index, it's about two degrees or so above the actual temperature. we're already starting to feel it even though we're only an hour into sunrise. the winds from the southwest around most of the state only one area that only has it from the southeast. everyone is getting a uniformed wind from the southwest. that's going to push in that hot air for the next day or so. our
culprit to bring us the cooler temperatures is this front that's kind of draped to our north now. it goes all the way back to the west. you can follow the cloud line and rain line. that's going to push through but not completely tomorrow. whether he have a lingering chance of thunderstorms today into tomorrow and then as it starts to push through tomorrow evening. the problem is, just kind of look at it this way, there's always a balance in the atmosphere. you don't go from 103 today to 84 without that transition. this front could bring some very strong storms. the system that's going to be moving through is not going to be as strong as it was on friday. it's not going to be quite that drastic. there could be some gusty thunderstorms embedded in this system. we're going to have to keep you posted through tomorrow afternoon until that gets out out here and then we start to see the cool down. 8:35 the sunset time today, south wind on the bay at 5 to
10. 103 today, our forecast high. the record 101 set back in 2010. 77 tonight. thunderstorms will approach and then they'll be us through out the day tomorrow off and on, thunderstorms poe acceptably strong late. a -- potentially strong late. 86 monday, 84, and 84, with a slight chance of thunderstorms because of the front. >> i'll take the 80s. >> yeah . i will too. still ahead on eyewitness news saturday morning, busted. an armed robbery definitely does not go as planned. we'll tell you what happened there. >> hazardous or helpful? what experts are saying about the popular e cigarettes. eyewitness news saturday morning will be,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

>> there's special things a trained dog can do for a disabled vet than any other kind of medication or therapy. >> it's pet therapy working in more ways than one. >> if we do a good job it's going to reflect on them and let society now we have a worth, that we can do something worthwhile. >> the dogs come through an organization called america's vet dogs. it's a nonprofit in new york. >> 12 dogs will be trained at any one time inside the prison. >> all right. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
