Record Cold and Rain

As the second strong low pressure system to pass through Maryland in less than a week begins to pull away from the mid Atlantic coast, the record book is being rewritten. Three of the past four days have had record amounts of rain for the date and today’s unseasonably chilly weather set a record for the coldest maximum temperature for May 12th in Baltimore. Here’s a summary of the new records:

May 9th: 1.85″ rain … old record: 1.41″ in 1919
May 11th: 1.49″ rain … old record: 1.28″ in 1924
May 12th: 2.18″ rain … old record: 2.06″ in 1921 (rain as of 6pm)

May 12th: High temperature: 50, lowest maximum temperature for 12th of May … old record: 51 in 1882
