Baltimore’s all-time coldest


Today, January 22nd, is the anniversary of one of Baltimore’s most significant winter weather records.  On January 22, 1984 the temperature dropped to -7° at BWI, tying the record for the coldest temperature ever officially measured here.  That frigid benchmark has been reached five times since 1870 at our official National Weather Service stations, including three times in January and twice in February.

  1. I’m looking for an informative response as to what does the weather pattern need to look like in order for the Baltimore and DC area to receive a substantial snow fall? We are hit with Artic clippers which bring clear skies, low temperatures, and very dry air. Winter precipitation is locked in the Northern third of the country, the extreme South and the Eastern Atlantic coast. According to global warming articles the jet stream pattern trend has shifted Northward somewhat. Maybe that will explain part of the reason for the lack of winter precipitation.

    I look forward to a response.
