Temperatures plunged into the lower 30’s in the overnight hours all the way into the immediate I-95 corridor and some spots even received enough snow shower activity to result in a dusting of snow. Some examples of the low temperatures observed this morning in the Mid-Atlantic region include 32 degrees at Allentown, PA and Sussex, NJ, 35 degrees at Philadelphia, PA and Atlantic City, NJ, and 34 degrees at New Brunswick, NJ and at BWI Airport which was just two degrees off the record of 32 degrees for the city of Baltimore which was recorded all the way back in 1875. Scattered snow showers are occurring today across parts of the Mid-Atlantic (e.g., south-central PA, northern part of the Delmarva Peninsula) and just about anyone can see some flakes during the mid-day and afternoon hours. The combination of the chill and gusty winds is making it feel much more like early March rather than late April. There will be one more cold night in the Mid-Atlantic region with many areas dropping back into the lower 30’s by early Friday and patchy frost is possible – all of which is a concern when it comes to potential damage to sensitive vegetation. Temperatures will modify on Friday afternoon after a chilly start to the day and sunshine should help to produce afternoon highs in the 60’s in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor.
