Mid May Chill

A quick shot of unseasonably chilly air is moving into the region early Monday. Frost and freeze conditions are possible in the mountains. A few locals in the metro area could dip into the upper 30s.

Monday’s record low temperature of 35 degrees (1973) at BWI-Marshall does not appear to be threatened. Temperatures could dip into the 30s on Tuesday morning as well and the record low of 39 degrees (2003) is vulnerable.

The graph below shows how high temperatures tracked last week at BWI-Marshall and how temperatures are expected to track this week.

The wide temperature swings demonstrated on the graph are typical in May, which is at the tail end of the transition from winter to summer.

Enjoy the warm up later in the week.
