Wednesday October 18
The Frost Advisory this morning may not have been expanded east enough. While local temperatures are actually a degree or two warmer than yesterday, the chilly air has reached southern Maryland and the Eastern Shore. In fact, it is colder this morning in Ocean City (at the Berlin Airport) and Salisbury than in Baltimore. There could be some frost on the sweet corn and hopefully no problems for the farmers. A big bounce this afternoon will bring us into the upper 60s and close to 70ºF, then lower 70s into the weekend. That means late runners in the Baltimore Running Festival could finish in sun assisted heat.
Contrast The Frost To Today’s Highs
Temps should jump to the 50s after 9 AM
The next big shot of cold air will arrive next week. A cold front is poised to give us some moderate rain Tuesday and some snow flurries in the mountains. Check this animation out. Then see the drop in temps with highs staying in the 50s for the second half of next week. We will eventually pay for the heat of the past month.
Baltimore Running Festival on Saturday will start cool and end warm. Temps may impact runners still on the course in the sun after 11 AM when we approach 70ºF.
