HAGERSTOWN — People who have been dissatisfied with the spring temperatures so far got some relief Monday when the mercury shot to a high of 79.3 degrees in Hagerstown, local weather observer Greg Keefer reported on his website at i4weather.net.

But the high temperature reached at 2:49 p.m. was not enough to set a record, according to Keefer’s website.

The record high temperature for April 8 was reached in 1991 when the temperature climbed to 87 degrees, according to the website.

The high temperature Tuesday is expected to be near 82 degrees and the high on Wednesday will be near 84 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The record high for April 9 is 87 degrees set in 2001 and the record high for April 10 is 86 degrees set in 1922, according to Keefer’s website.

The forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday is partly sunny and depending on the cloud cover that could possibly move into the area, the high temperatures may not be quite as high as expected, said Greg Schoor, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va.

The temperatures are expected to drop off toward the end of the week with a high temperature of about 65 on Friday and a high near 56 on Saturday.
