Extreme weather has plagued not only Maryland but all of the united states from heat to snow.

Let's start with the all-time record heat that occurred in parts of the East to start fall. Portions of the Northwest have seen record snow and cold and let's not forget about Lorenzo, which became a rare Category 5 in a peculiar location....650 miles farther east than Hugo in 1989 which is previously the easternmost Category 5 hurricane. The extreme weather occurred in the first 10 days of fall and was caused by a wavy jet stream that set up shop across the United States.

Maryland has experienced record setting heat. Temps have taken a tumble down and will continue to go down into the start of the weekend. Lows on Saturday morning will be in the 40s and highs will stay below average in the mid to upper 60s. The million dollar question: Is Fall here to stay for a while or does Mother Nature have another trick of her sleeve?
