Record low of 34 set at BWI

freeze warnings issued

May 22, 2002|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A record low of 34 degrees was recorded early yesterday at Baltimore-Washington International Airport. The chill broke the old record of 38 degrees, set in 1992.

It was the third straight morning of record cold at BWI, and a fourth was possible this morning. The forecast low of 38 degrees would break a 42-degree mark set in 1968.

The continued cold prompted the National Weather Service yesterday to issue overnight freeze warnings for Garrett and Allegany counties, where temperatures were likely to dip below 32 degrees.

Frost advisories were posted for Washington, Frederick and Carroll counties.
