Unprecedented April Chill

A month into spring and the chill has been hard to shake in the mid Atlantic states. In fact, the National Weather Service reports the period from April 5th through the 17th was the coldest on record for Baltimore. The average temperature of 42.2F for the period was more than a degree colder than the previous record of 43.7F set back in 1907.

For the month, as a whole, it has been cloudy, cold and wet. The average temperature so far is running 6 degrees below normal with precipitation 2.64″ above normal. Only 2 of the first 19 days this month have been sunny.

A big change is on the way for the weekend. As high pressure builds into the region Friday, clearing skies and warmer temperatures will arrive in time for the weekend.
