April 24 Summer heat Sunday inland and still a chill by the water
April 24, 2022
Sunday morning report
We have a wonderful start to this last weekend of April. But before we take a look at the wild heights, let’s go back to yesterday and see how warm it’s gotten. The expectation of wide distribution was met on the map, and a slight shift in air masses will provide a clue today.
The high temperatures on Saturday
- 60s by the Bay and most of Delmarva… With the exception of a small warmer region, better Easton and Salisbury.
- 70’s from Baltimore and far west..
- 80’s in the mountains of Cumberland and central to southern Virginia.
Set up tomorrow
A blizzard rages across the Northern Plains…
The Midwest cold front will trigger some storms, but well ahead of them today will try to push warm air east.
A stationary front yesterday defines the separation of cool and warm air. That boundary will still be in our region today, but should be moved a little further east… But the Chesapeake Bay will still provide local cooling.
Near Baltimore it will be almost 80ºF. I’m pushing that brand, but it’s more likely to be further inland.
Look to Central and Southern Virginia… Temperatures will soar into the high 80’s and low 90’s!!! This is SUMMER HEAT!
Delmarva and the coastal areas remain cool.
Normal low in Baltimore: 45ºF
Record 32ºF in 2003
Normal high in Baltimore: 68ºF
Record 93ºF 1960
Let’s first look at the winds from Sunday afternoon through Monday.
Here we can see the wind trying this afternoon and then dominating on Monday. This will lower the temperature (again) a bit.
Thanks to the wind it will be much cooler…
There should be more clouds and we may see speckles developing that don’t show up on radar.
This is the day when a cold front should arrive with a chance of spotty rain. The risk of storms will be low…
The air that follows will be cool! Thursday morning brings another regional frost!
I will have more about the cool end of April and outlook in my evening report.
7 day forecast
A rainy Tuesday may be followed by frost on Thursday morning.

*Disclaimer due to frequently asked questions:
I am aware that there are some spelling and grammatical errors. I’ve made a few public statements over the years, but if you’re new here you might have missed it:
I have dyslexia and found it out in my sophomore year at Cornell University. I didn’t stop myself from earning my Meteorology degree and being the first to receive the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington area.
I miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell checker on my computer sometimes does a wrong to make it worse.
All maps and information are correct. The “wordy” stuff can get sticky.
There is no editor who can check my work when i need it and have it ready to ship in a newsworthy timeline.
I accept that and maybe proves that what you read is really mine…
It’s part of my charm.
