Cold, but no records
Another gorgeous autumn day today in Mobtown. The clear skies helped temperatures cool overnight to the lowest lows so far this season. The mercury dipped to 38 degrees at BWI. That's 10 degrees below the normal low for Oct. 6, but still 5 degrees short of the record low of 33 degrees for the date, set in 1965.
Obviously, it was colder to the north and west: 37 degrees at Westminster; 34 outside my window in Cockeysville, and 32 degrees in Garrett County.
And there's more of the same in the wings. It may not quite reach 70 degrees today at BWI, but the prognosticators see nothing but sunny skies, highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s straight through the weekend. I may have to ask my editors for a mental health day this week.
