Temperature Benchmark

The area has passed a temperature benchmark. The record high temperature for BWI/Marshall Airport on Thursday, November 8 was recorded in 1995 at 80 degrees. The next time an 80 degree reading appears in the high temperature records is on February 25. On that date in 1930 the thermometer hit 83 degrees. This amounts to a 108 day run in which, statistically speaking, the forces of nature prevent the area from having any significantly warm days.

Shorter days and lower sun angle have pushed the area over the edge and we are going down that slippery slope that locks us into colder winter temperatures.

Bundle up.
