For the first time this year, temperatures climbed above 90 degrees Saturday at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Saturday’s high temperature was 93 degrees, 16 degrees above normal temperatures for this time of year, according to the National Weather Service. However, it was several degrees short of the record for May 22 — 98 degrees — which was recorded in 1941.
A similar high temperature is forecast for Sunday, and there could be scattered showers after midnight, according to the National Weather Service.
The area will cool off Monday, with high temperatures likely to be in the 70s. Rain showers in the morning are likely, and there’s also a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Tuesday will be partly sunny after morning clouds clear, and high temperatures could reach 80 degrees. Wednesday, high temperatures could reach the lower 90s once again.
