November's temperature quirks
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
Some oddities noted during the month of November: Temperatures at BWI-Marshall on Nov. 4 varied by only 3 degrees. The high that Thursday was 50 degrees, after a low of 47. (That matched another 3-degree spread on May 18, when the high was 56, the low 53.) On Nov. 12, the airport recorded both the month’s low temperature (28 degrees) and its high (66), a span of 38 degrees. There was a wider spread back on April 30 (42 to 83 degrees), but neither reading was the extreme for that month.

UPDATE: Monday morning's low of 25 degrees at BWI has eclipsed the 28-degree low reading on the 12th. That's what I get for trying to wrap up the month's weather data a week before it actually ends. - FR
