For many Baltimoreans, spring begins at 3:05 p.m. Monday with the first pitch of the Orioles season, and sunshine, gusty winds and temperatures around 60 degrees are forecast for it.
The morning was forecast to start off in the mid-30s, warming into the 40s for the morning and into the 50s by midday. Winds of 15-20 mph and gusts up to 30 mph were expected into the early afternoon.
Another taste of winter was fresh for many in areas north and west of Baltimore, after several inches of snow fell across much of the region Sunday night. As much as 8.8 inches of snow was reported near Manchester in Carroll County, with 2-3 inches in western Howard County, and an inch or two in parts of Baltimore County, according to the National Weather Service. A trace of snow was reported at BWI Airport.
Seasonable spring weather is forecast for the rest of the week. Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures could reach the mid-60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies and lows in the mid-40s.
April showers were expected Thursday and Friday, with rain likely, highs in the upper 50s and lows in the upper 40s.
