Friday April 7 – The strong winds today have pushed 39 mph at BWI and helped to hold temps down for most places east of the mountains in the 40s. This is all part of the same system that brought severe storms yesterday, and snow too western Maryland today. Yes, they have stickage at Wisp Resort and there are pictures below to prove it.
The focus locally is about the cold air. Once the winds settle down a bit tonight, and the sky tried to clear… temperatures will drop! At this point, it looks like the freezing line will stay north of Baltimore and inland from I-95… So the typical places that tend to get more snow in winter will be threatened will air cold enough to damage early spring growth. This is one reason why many gardeners suggest to wait until after Mother’s Day to plant.
Take a look at this afternoon’s web cam images from Wisp Resort in western Maryland. They had stickage and show off the source of the cold air.
Race Weather: Sole Of The City 10K
I got my packet, but I will miss the race. My kids have photos and opening ceremony for their Little League Baseball season. So sadly I will miss out on one of my favorite races, and I was aiming to break an 8 min/mile. But maybe you will perform well with a little chill.
- Start cold: Low to mid 40s (dress for 15ºF warmer)
- Winds will increase between 10 and 25 mph gusts later in the morning.
- If you see ‘near 60F’ on your app, that is the afternoon high temperature by 5 PM.
Here is the close up view of the winds

The end of the weekend will be great, as temps will climb not the upper 60s Sunday. They keep going up next week as we approach 80F by Tuesday.
