Freeze warning early, then highs in mid-50s Friday

Baltimore, Annapolis, Washington, D.C., and surrounding suburbs were under a freeze warning early Friday, though temperatures did not quite get that cold in many areas. Afternoon highs were forecast in the mid-50s.

The National Weather Service reported temperatures in the lower 30s in rural locations of Maryland away from the coast early Friday while lows were being measured around 40 degrees or below in southern Baltimore, Anne Arundel County and outlying suburbs and the outlying suburbs and counties of Washington.

Temperatures at Baltimore-Washington International Airport dropped to 36 degrees early Friday morning, as did the Carroll County Regional Airport in Westminster, while the Frederick Municipal Airport hit 34 degrees, according to weather service monitors. The warming effect of the Inner Harbor kept lows there from dropping below 40 degrees.

The freeze warning expired at 10 a.m. Mostly cloudy skies were expected early, gradually clearing somewhat through the afternoon.

Saturday could bring another chance for freezing temperatures early in the morning, with sunny skies during the day and highs in the upper 50s.

Partly cloudy skies are forecast Sunday with highs around 60 degrees and lows in the 30s.

The chilly, dry weather pattern is forecast to continue into early next week.
