Artscape is remembered by many for perennially steamy weather, but that won't be the case for this year's edition of the weekend arts and music festival. Temperatures are forecast to peak only around 80 degrees Saturday and Sunday afternoons, about 8 degrees cooler than normal for this time of year. Humidity will also be on the lower end of the spectrum for summertime, with dew points around 60 degrees, about 10 degrees lower than in typical heat spells. Some storms are possible Sunday afternoon and evening, but no washout is expected.

A tornado watch that had covered much of Maryland and the mid-Atlantic has been canceled, with wet but non-severe weather forecast the rest of Monday. Heavy rain fell across much of the region as a squall line moved through about midday. A light steady rain was expected to continue into the afternoon hours. Weather service forecasters had cautioned isolated tornadoes were possible in areas under the tornado watch. Though the sun's heating typically fuels summertime severe weather, heavy moisture in the air, especially for this time of year, was fueling instability in the atmosphere Monday as cooler, drier air more typical for fall moves in from the northwest.

Vacation-starved travelers packing munchies in the cooler for their summer road trips might be tempted to load in everything but the kitchen sink.But before you start cramming the Coleman, veteran traveler Janet Groene, an expert on the finer points of cooler cuisine, has a little advice:Skip the bananas. After two days smelling them in a cooler, where they're getting progressively more bruised and squishy, nobody in the car will eat them. You may end up pitching the fruit in a rest-stop trash bin just to get it out of the car.If you want to pack bananas for your road trip, add them to a mixed-fruit salad so their soft, aromatic qualities will become an asset, not a nauseating detriment.

The Cooler has graphic sex and primed performers, but I'd rather have been watching a repeat of the Twilight Zone gambling episode "The Fever," which at least gave you the pleasure of seeing a talking, vindictive one-armed bandit, and, with a half-hour length, didn't wear out its welcome. The performers in this new, Las Vegas-set independent feature give their all to the story of an out-of-fashion casino owner (Alec Baldwin) and the "cooler" (William H. Macy) he employs to jinx hot tables.

V alerie Murray in Rock Hall asks: "Why are wind-chill temperatures only given after summer? In the winter, the wind-chills make it sound colder. If calculated in the summer, maybe it would make it seem cooler." It would. Summer breezes speed evaporation, and you do feel cooler. But it's more important in summer to report the heat index, combining heat and humidity. High humidity slows evaporative cooling, raising hot-weather health risks.

Dew points were hovering around 50 degrees for a second straight day in Baltimore on Tuesday -- a level more common in September or October.

On the third Saturday in May, generations of Baltimoreans marched onto the infield at Pimlico Race Course with their coolers in tow, an image that helped define the Preakness Stakes. No longer. The Maryland Jockey Club has unveiled enhanced security plans for the 138th Preakness Stakes in the wake of recent deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. And coolers are among the casualties. Fans will be subject to electronic wand searches at all gates for the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes on May 17 and the Preakness on May 18. They will not be allowed to carry backpacks or duffel bags into the races and only smaller, see-through-plastic containers will be permitted.

Record-breaking 97-degree heat is serious business when you live in an airless rowhouse in Southwest Baltimore. Maybe that's why 23-month-old Jahari Gray looked so serious Tuesday as he held the garden hose that was ever-so-slowly filling a blue, plastic wading pool on the sidewalk at his parents' home in the 1200 block of West Cross Street. A weary-looking Lee Evans, 24, watched Jahari from the steps of another Formstone rowhouse next door. "It's burnin' up, man," he said.
