Online Maryland Weather Blog reader “Johnny C” writes: “After hearing about the temps in Ark and OK the last few days, I’m curious as to what was the lowest temp … around Baltimore, and when it occurred.”
Our coldest reading is minus-7 degrees. It’s been matched five times between Feb. 10, 1899 and Jan. 22, 1984. That 1984 record came just five months after a reading of 105 degrees, on Aug. 20, 1983, still the record August high.
Baltimore’s hottest temperature was 107 degrees, on July 10, 1936.
