Rain expected before turkey enters the oven

November 24, 1992

After a night filled with explosive thunderclaps and drenching rain, Marylanders woke to blue skies and summerlike temperatures yesterday.

But keep those raincoats handy -- wet weather may be arriving again, just in time for Thanksgiving travelers.

Temperatures were about 20 degrees above normal yesterday, soaring to 73 in Baltimore -- within one degree of the city record for the date set on Nov. 23, 1974. The mercury reached 69 at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Amet Figueroa, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service at BWI, said temperatures are expected to hover in the 60s today and tomorrow, when storm clouds are expected to gather. Rain, according to forecasters at the BWI office, is expected to return tomorrow and end during the day on Thanksgiving, with temperatures sliding down to the 50s by Friday.
