Moderate Drought Conditions As We Begin Spring

March 27 - If the forecast for rain at any point has you disappointed, we should consider that we need it. While the recent snow and ice storm and some extended fog may have the soil a little damp, the overall water supply is running a little low. Ask many who have well water or

Warm Today Then Showers And Cool End To Weekend

Saturday March 25 - Temperatures are noticeably warmer, but we have clouds to deal with as well. Friday's high temperature at BWI was 61ºF just before midnight.
