September 19 2020
A Frost Advisory has been issued for Sunday Morning September 20 for southern Pennsylvania and parts of western Maryland. That may not include your home, but if you live in the colder suburbs of Maryland north and west of Baltimore, you may see some as well. In fact, it happened earlier today. Frost can do some damage to sensitive crops, stimulate others for harvest, and trigger the leaves to start changing.
Frost Advisory Sunday
This first local Frost Advisory from The National Weather Service includes nearby York and Adams Counties in southern Pennsylvania, and many mountain regions west and north. In Maryland, Hagerstown, Cumberland, and Deep Creek Lake are included. I believe there may be spots with frost in central Maryland, so this could include your place.
Frost Seen Saturday Morning
This frosty view was in New Windsor this morning, sent to me from Wakefield Valley Nursery.
Surface temperatures can be in the upper 30s to allow for ice crystals to form on the grass.
Weather Set Up
We finally cleared out the sky for the blue color we missed. The evening sunset with this crescent moon. There were some high clouds to the southwest, but we should be generally clear tonight.
Dew Point Temperatures = Coolest It Could Get
In the evening we look at the dew point for a signal of how much moisture is in the atmosphere. When the air is clear and still, we can drop the temps quickly to that level when the moisture would start to condense. That is a signal for the coolest it could get if conditions are perfect.
On Maryland, the Dew Point Temperature was 34ºF in both Westminster and at BWI.
There are other factors that limit the cooling. Urban Heat Island is one of them by the airport. So BWI will NOT get that chilly. But Westminster could get closer.
Climate Data for Baltimore
I do not see a record low, but it may get close.
Normal Low = 56ºF
Record Low = 42ºF in 1956 and 1959
Sunrise = 6:52 AM. The coolest temps wil be within about 30 to 60 minutes of this time.
The NAM 3 Km Model is showing lows in the 30s in parts of central Maryland:
- Frederick: 34ºF
- Westminster: 39ºF
I also think frost could be seen in western Howard County, Baltimore’s Hereford Zone, and northern Harford County.
NOT near the beltways or by the water.
Quick Warm Up
With sunshine, the afternoon temperatures will get back to the mid 60s in central Maryland
