Below-normal temperatures tie, break area records


Furnace running this morning? Cold Canadian air has kept daytime and nighttime temperatures at Baltimore-Washington International Airport nearly 15 degrees below normal in recent days, according to the National Weather Service.

The low just before dawn yesterday fell to 39 degrees at BWI, breaking the 45-degree record for the date last reached in 1994. Record lows also were reached at Washington's Dulles (37 degrees) and Reagan National (43 degrees) airports.

The mercury dipped to 40 degrees at BWI early Sunday morning, tying a record low for that date set in 1956. This morning's low was not expected to break the record of 38 degrees, set on this date in 1992.
