As quickly as a drought developed across Maryland, it is not going away quickly despite a recent rainy pattern. Moderate drought conditions persist across the state, even after close to 3 inches of rain fell within five days.
The season's first frost is forecast early Saturday morning in the northern and western Baltimore suburbs. Temperatures are forecast to drop into the lower 30s in those areas, and the mid- to upper 30s around Baltimore.
Rainfall at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport reached 1.27 inches by 4 p.m. Wednesday, the most rainfall in a single day at the region’s point of record since March 21, when 1.74 inches fell.
