The four seasons in Maryland are distinct. Summers are hot and humid with an abundance of sun and average high temperatures in the upper 80’s. Winters are cold with daytime lows averaging in the upper 30’s. Maryland experiences some snowy days, with an occasional blizzard, perhaps every three to four years. Snow is especially likely in the Western Maryland mountains. Spring and Fall have moderate temperatures with occasional rain showers, especially in April and May, and they are lovely times to visit Maryland for general get-aways.
