June 13 2017

We finally have something to show for this heatwave in Baltimore just as it is about to end.  At 3:30PM BWI airport recorded a temperature of 97ºF to tied the record for the date that was sent back in 1956. So 61 years in the making, we go back in the record books.

  • Normal High for June 13 = 83ºF
  • Last year on this date = 80ºF


Sunset this evening will be at 8:34 PM

At that time, we will be awaiting NASA’s 7th attempt for the Wallops Island rocket launch for high altitude colorful clouds. See more about that and the live video stream in this post
