The three warmest cities in Maryland are Snow Hill, Baltimore, and Crisfield.
In this article I’m going to share with you my ranking of the warmest places in Maryland.
I created my list by researching data provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other climate data providers.
Below I’m listing the top 10 warmest places in Maryland that have the highest average yearly temperatures. Later in the article I share a table with 23 most populous cities in Maryland.
Top 10 Warmest Cities in Maryland
Here are the top 10 warmest places in Maryland ranked by their daily mean temperature. While most of the state has a similar climate, these cities offer average temperatures that are noticeably higher both in the coldest month and the hottest month.
1. Snow Hill – daily mean temperature of 59.35 °F
The small town of Snow Hill located on the Pocomoke River in the eastern part of the state has, according to weather data, the highest average temperature in Maryland. Snow Hill has a relatively mild climate year round. In the winter, it sees highs of 49-52 °F and lows of 30-34 °F. In the summer, the average high temperatures reach 85-89 °F and average low temperatures drop to 65-70 °F.
2. Baltimore – daily mean temperature of 59.15 °F
The largest city in Maryland, Baltimore, is the second warmest city in the state. The difference between Snow Hill and Baltimore is most noticeable in the winter during the day. The average high temperature in Baltimore is 4 degrees lower than in Snow Hill. Meantime, summers are hotter by a degree in Baltimore. As for average rainfall, weather conditions are roughly uniform year round, with a little more precipitation in the spring.
3. Crisfield – daily mean temperature of 58.5 °F
Located on the Tangier Sound, the small town Crisfield is the third warmest city in Maryland. Surrounded by state parks, Crisfield may be a good option for those looking for a quiet town in the Old Line State that offers some of the mildest weather conditions. Because of its proximity to large bodies of water, the city gets very little snow in the winters.
4. Annapolis – daily mean temperature of 57.75 °F
Annapolis is one of the largest cities in Maryland. It’s situated 32 miles south of Baltimore. Its average temperature is lower by about 1-1.5 degrees than in the first three cities. The biggest difference is in the hottest months, though, with Annapolis offering slightly cooler summers.
5. Frederick – daily mean temperature of 57 °F
The second most populous city in Maryland, Frederick, is the first city on this list located deep inland, about 49 miles west of Baltimore. The main difference is noticeable during the night, with Frederick seeing average lows of 27-31 °F compared to 30-35 °F in Baltimore.
6. Pocomoke City – daily mean temperature of 57 °F
Pocomoke City is another place in this ranking that’s situated on the Delmarva Peninsula. Like other cities in this region, it doesn’t see much snow during the winter. Temperature-wise, it has milder daytime temperatures in the coldest months than Baltimore and has cooler summers. While it has rainfall similarly distributed year round as Baltimore, weather stations report that it has about 25 fewer days of precipitation.
7. Salisbury – daily mean temperature of 56.95 °F
Salisbury is one of the most populous cities of Maryland. Located 26 miles north of Pocomoke City, the average temperature in Salisbury is virtually the same with no noticeable differences in any season.
8. Berlin – daily mean temperature of 56.6 °F
Berlin lies 24 miles east of Salisbury. This small town is located close to the famous resort town of Ocean City (which would place #13 with an average temperature of 55.85 °F). Summer days in Berlin are 3 degrees cooler than in Salisbury. The town gets slightly warmer nights, though.
9. Laurel – daily mean temperature of 56.45 °F
Laurel is a city located roughly midway between Washington and Baltimore. If you don’t want to live in any of the two big cities but want to have easy access to both, Laurel may be the best option for you. Laurel has colder winters than Baltimore and slightly cooler summers.
10. Princess Anne – daily mean temperature of 56.35 °F
Princess Anne, located 14 miles northwest of Pocomoke City, is the tenth warmest city in Maryland. Despite the coldest nighttime temperatures in the winter out of all ten cities (25-28 °F), the average monthly rainfall and daytime temperatures still qualify Princess Anne as having a humid subtropical climate. One of the most notable exceptions that doesn’t have this climate is aptly named Frostburg that has a humid continental climate and is the coldest city in Maryland.
23 Biggest Cities in Maryland Ranked by Daily Mean Temperature
I created the table below by researching data for the most populous municipalities in Maryland. When I couldn’t find data for a given city, I moved on to another. While the list includes 23 cities, some of the bigger cities may be missing because there was no data for them. Please check the closest geographically city then.
