Mid-April is a dry period for Baltimore ... on average
FROM TODAY'S PRINT EDITIONS:
Like baseball, weather is a game of statistics. Averages, extremes, records and trends are all of interest to the aficionado.
And here’s one I’d never noticed: In Baltimore, April 13 to 18 is, on average, one of the two driest periods of the year. On those dates, the average daily rainfall (since the 1870s) has been just 0.09 inch.
Except for a similar period in the fall (Oct. 23-26), average daily rainfall ranges from 0.10 to 0.14 inch. The wettest days are in mid-September. Who knew?
