Mild July Temperatures Make, Tie Record Lows At BWI
by Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram
BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Mild July temperatures are making and tying record lows set at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram reports the pattern of the jetstream has been bringing us unusually cool weather this month.
As the jet stream dips well to our south, it pulls down cooler Canadian air along with it.
When temperatures fell to 57 degrees last Friday, a record low was set–beating the old record low of 59 degrees set in 2008. The same temperature set a record low on July 18, beating the old record of 58 degrees set in 1976.
And when the chilly conditions aren’t breaking records, they’re tying them.
Tuesday’s low of 59 degrees ties with a record set in 1978.
During the Fourth of July weekend, Saturday’s record low of 55 degrees tied with that of 1979.
Temperatures Wednesday morning are forecast to bottom out around 56 degrees, meaning another unseasonably cool night and morning is on tap for Baltimore.
With the cool air sticking around, conditions will be favorable for another record low temperature to either be tied or broken. The current standing record low temperature for July 30 is 56 degrees.
