The wind shifted and the fog finally dispersed from central Maryland. The result in Baltimore was the new record high temperature forecast advertised earlier of this week, as well as another potential record. Consider that the normal high temperature on November 6 for BWI is 60°F and the old record was 77°F set back in 2005 and a few other years. Today’s official high was 80°F at 1:40 PM… 20 degrees above average!
Washington’s two airports also hit the same record of 80°F at both Reagan National and Dulles.
Another potential record
This second one relates to this morning, but we won’t be able to confirm it until midnight. The low this morning was 63 °F, which tied the warmest low temperature for the date set back in 1938. We need to wait until the end of the day for confirm that the temperature does not drop below that mark. Shore range forecast does have the cold front with some showers this evening, but staying mild until Saturday morning.
Back To Reality: Twofold
- Temperatures will drop back to and below normal over the weekend. The high on Saturday will be in the 60s, but in the morning. It should get cooler in the afternoon.
- It will also be the first day this season with sunset in the 4 PM hour. This is when the fading daylight will be really noticeable.

Consider that Weather Folklore supports the rule of extremes and Law Of Averages. A Warm November means a harsh winter ahead.
