The US state of Maryland is located on the Atlantic coast in the east of the USA, bordered by Virginia and Washington DC to the south and sharing a border with West Virginia to the west. Then to the north is the state of Pennsylvania and to the northeast is neighboring Delaware.
The capital is Annapolis, a fairly small city with about 39,000 inhabitants. Although there are no more living in all of St. Kitts and Nevis either. A total of 5.8 million American residents live in Maryland on just over 32,000 km². This roughly corresponds to the area covered by the European country of Belgium.

Climate and weather
Port of Baltimore Maryland
Due to its location near the Atlantic Ocean, Maryland has a temperate, slightly humid climate.
In Maryland, too, spring brings forth the flowers and the buds of the trees.
The summers are warm, with temperatures below 30 degrees usually not that hot, probably because of the proximity to the Atlantic.
In late summer and autumn, isolated hurricanes can occur, so caution is advised. As in other states on the Atlantic, the weather in winter is relatively moderate again, the mercury only falls below zero at night. Snow chaos and snowstorms, the blizzards that are often experienced in New York, can also occur in Maryland on the coast.
