Heavy rain expected in Baltimore

January 15, 1995|By Glenn Small | Glenn Small,Sun Staff Writer

Thunderstorms and showers will dump several inches of rain on the Baltimore area in the next few days, beginning today -- and the unseasonably warm weather the area has experienced the past two days will end later this week.

"Our record-setting for high temperatures, at least for several weeks, is a thing of the past," said Dick Diener, a forecaster for the National Weather Service at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

A high temperature record was surpassed at the airport yesterday, when the mercury reached 69 degrees at 1:30 p.m., Mr. Diener said. The record had been 68, set in 1990.

Highs are expected today in the low- to mid-60s. By Thursday, the high will drop to about 45, Mr. Diener said.

It will rain in most of the Baltimore area today, tomorrow and Tuesday, with thundershowers in some areas.
