Record-high heat came to visit -- not to stay

May 03, 1992

Mother Nature pulled a fast one yesterday, bypassing spring and sending the temperature to a summer-like record high of 93 in Baltimore.

"We're getting that good old southwest wind, it always brings the warm weather in," said Ken Shaver, a forecaster at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport. The previous record of 88 was set in 1930.

But Mr. Shaver said our flirtation with summer would be "a one-day fling." A cold front was expected to pass through Central Maryland overnight, sending temperatures into the low 60s.

A high in the mid-70s, with partly sunny skies and breezy northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph was forecast for today. "We'll try to get the Bay Bridge people a nice day for walking," Mr. Shaver said.
