Can you believe St. Patrick's Day is tomorrow?? Looking back at conditions on St. Patrick's day from the past five years (2017-2021), the data shows a trace of rain was recorded at BWI four out of the five years. On March 17th, 2018, it felt more winter-like as high temperatures only hit 44°. The high was 66° on St. Patrick's Day in 2020. This year, we can expect temperatures to be above normal, in the lower-60s. A disturbance brings rain showers and plenty of clouds during the day. Rainfall totals will range between .50-.75" for most spots across central Maryland. You will need to keep the umbrella with you if you are heading out for St. Patrick's Day festivities.
