High temperatures in the Baltimore area are expected to reach 90 degrees Monday, the National Weather Service says.

Temperatures will be in the 80s for much of the week before dipping a little cooler on Saturday.


No significant rain is in the forecast.

However, the National Hurricane Center is monitoring the track of Hurricane Maria, which on Monday morning was due east of the Georgia coast.

It appeared poised to head northward before turning east into the Atlantic, forecasts showed.

The storm could bring a storm surge and rain to the Eastern Shore before the storm potentially swings east. That timing, the forecast suggests, would be around Thursday.

Tuesday and Wednesday could provide some clouds, but temperatures will be in the mid-80s. Thursday and Friday are poised to be sunny, but with temperatures in the mid- to upper-70s.

Saturday and Sunday forecasts call for highs around 70 degrees, the Weather Service said.

Community voices Maria T. Padilla and Eric Jackson raise a call-to-action for support of Puerto Rico after the devastation of two hurricanes is as many weeks.
