Records Threatened This Week

A new set of record high temperatures are vulnerable this week as another round of heat and humidity is on the way. As of now the records at BWI-Marshall stand as listed in the table below.

The weather pattern that has been providing the unusually warm temperatures is also contributing to a stretch of dry weather. The last significant rainfall at BWI-Marshall was 1.5 inches spread out over six days (May 14-19). Only .27 inches of rain has been measured at the airport since then and many areas have seen less than that. On top of that, the higher temperatures and ample sunshine have dried the soil considerably. The area could use some rain. The next best chance for some significant rain will be at the end of the week. The rainfall will likely be scattered and not beneficial for some.
