As more of our applicants are admitted, we begin receiving more questions about Baltimore and what it’s like to spend a year or two or five in our fine city.
As we brace for a winter storm, what better Baltimore topic to address than the weather!
Full disclosure: as I’ve mentioned before, I’m a native Marylander and I may be biased. But I did spend a few years of my life in Southern California where the weather is nearly always temperate and sunny. And you know what? It got old.
I love Maryland’s four distinct seasons. It’s true that summer is often hot and muggy, but the beach is just two hours away! Winter can be cold and snowy, but who doesn’t love a snow day? And our extended springs and falls are heaven. But that’s just my opinion.
You can review averages and Baltimore weather statistics for yourself:
- Average Weather for Baltimore, from the Weather Channel
- A plethora of weather data (including normal monthly snowfalls, monthly precipitation, and average monthly temps) from the National Weather Service
- Maryland State Climatologist Office
