40th 90° Day and counting…

The heat of this summer is fast becoming as impressive as the snow from last winter.  With a high of 94° on Wednesday, BWI-Marshall registered its 40th day this year with temperatures at or above 90°.  A sharp contrast to the summer of 2009 when the max temperature hit the 90s just 13 times.  Still, we would need another two weeks (14 more days) of 90° temperatures to reach the all-time record which is 54 days set in the scorching hot summer of 1988.  The normal number of 90° days in August is 7 and typically there are another 3 days with temperatures in the 90s in September.  So, a normal finish to the summer would leave us a few days short of the record.  But, this summer has been anything by “normal”, at least so far.  Stay tuned!

  1. Tom just wondering does global warming play a part in the amount of days we have had this year of 90+ degree days? I enjoy your forecasts each night at 6. A Faithful Fan, Roland
