May 17 2016 – The rain today helped Baltimore stay below well below average again! In fact the high on this date ‘should have been’ 74°F. A bench mark for May has been failing to reach 60°F, and today’s high at BWI was only 56°F making for the 7th day this month. The last time May had that many cool days in Baltimore was way back in 1882. There is actually a chance that there could be one more this weekend with the next rain storm. Considering the urban heat island effect, that is an even more impressive feat combined with a strong sun angle and longer days this time of year.
Here is the break down of the 7 days with more stats below:
