May is a beautiful spring month in Maryland with pleasant weather between rain and shine. The average high temperatures are in the warm 68°F (20°C) to 77°F (25°C) zone, while the nights are mild in the average range of 45°F (7.2°C) to 57°F (13.9°C). Baltimore in the central region registers between a comfortable 52°F (11.1°C) to 74°F (23.3°C), while Hagerstown in the west is between 52°F (11.1°C) to 72°F (22.2°C). The rainfall on the coast is lesser than the western part of the state. Consequently, the eastern shore draws crowds of students and visitors during spring break. The green surroundings, freshwater in the rivers, and the warmth of the sun create a brilliant atmosphere full of energy. Migratory birds arrive at their destinations by early spring and exceed numbers by the end of the spring season. Biking and hiking on nature trails is a great way to explore nature. The abundant freshwaters ensure plenty of fish in the rivers for fishing enthusiasts. May is the perfect time to beat the summer crowds in Maryland.
