Spring Temperature Swings

You know it’s spring in the mid Atlantic when the temperature roller coaster gets moving. The remnants of winter’s chilly air is still draped along the U.S./Canadian border, close enough to make the occasional push south. Meantime, the strengthening sun and lengthening days make for warmer air masses just south of us. As the jet stream buckles, winter cold can collide with spring warmth and wild temperature swings ensue. Take a look at some of the temperatures contrasts measured at BWI-Marshall airport this month:

March 2nd, high: 62 … March 3rd, low: 29

March 15th, high: 75 … March 16th, low: 29 with snow

March 21st, low: 35 … March 22nd, high: 74
