April 2 2021

We are still in the grip of a winter-like weather pattern. This even brought snow showers to Kent Island and parts of the Maryland Eastern Shore this morning.  The good news is that the winds are easing up, and the clouds will diminish tonight.  The down side of that will be the core of the cold air early Saturdays morning that may challenge the record low temperatures at BWI.
