Baltimore surpassed its annual total of 90-degree days last week but is still equal to or behind tallies of hot days for the past two years. Twenty-one days in July have reached 90 degrees or above at BWI Marshall Airport so far this year. That makes 34 days at or above 90 so far this year -- four more than the annual norm of 30 days. At BWI, two days reached 90 in May and 11 did in June. But despite the seemingly high tally, 2012 is on pace with 2011 and won't meet the pace 2010 set through the end of July.

This week, millions of young people head to college and universities, aiming for a four-year liberal arts degree. They assume that degree is the only gateway to the American middle class. It shouldn't be. For one thing, a four-year liberal arts degree is hugely expensive. Too many young people graduate laden with debts that take years if not decades to pay off. And too many of them can't find good jobs when they graduate, in any event. So they have to settle for jobs that don't require four years of college.

The Baltimore area hit 90 degrees for the first time since Aug. 10 on Monday, tying a heat record set in 2002. Temperatures briefly passed the milestone at BWI Marshall Airport at 3:51 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. It was the hottest day of a year that has already been marked with warmer-than-average temperatures. And the heat is not likely to linger — cooler weather was expected to move in behind a cold front overnight Monday. A high-pressure system settled over the Carolinas and sent warm southerly winds heating the region and keeping it dry, said Carrie Suffern, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. A cold front was expected to move through the region Monday night, bringing temperatures down to the mid-70s Tuesday.

RAVENS inside linebacker Ray Lewis has won the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player and been honored as the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year, but his greatest achievement may come Saturday when he walks across a stage on the University of Maryland campus. Nearly eight years after he left the University of Miami as a junior to enter the NFL draft, and on the day of his 29th birthday, Lewis will earn a bachelor of arts degree from Maryland in business administration. Talk about euphoria. To Lewis, this is better than taking out Eddie George and Steve McNair in a playoff game, or earning a sixth consecutive Pro Bowl appearance.
