I hope you didn’t pack the winter jacket away just yet because you will want to have it handy for the next couple of nights. Lows tonight will drop close to the record (36, set back in 1996) at BWI. All of this chilly air is being ushered in by northwest winds that followed behind a potent cold front that brought us severe weather over the weekend. Highs on Monday will only reach to near 60 degrees and a cool breeze will make things feel even chillier. Certainly not what we would expect for May temperatures! “Normal” temps should be in the low and mid 70s for this time of year.
Growing season officially began on May 5th, and because of the chilly temps the NWS has issued a FREEZE WARNING for western Allegany County in Western MD, as well as a FROST ADVISORY for portions of Washington County and eastern Allegany County in Western MD from 2AM-8AM Monday. Additionally, a FREEZE WATCH has already been posted to go into affect overnight Monday for the same areas. I have a feeling that a frost advisory will be issued and extended for most areas west of the I-95 corridor with lows again forecast to be in the mid 30s.
For now… bundle up! #mdwx
