Beginning the Next Big Warm Up

Beginning the Next Big Warm Up

Wednesday Feb 22 – A few light showers were passing through Washington and southern Maryland this morning. That will open up the warm flow and allow temperatures to begin to soar again. While it may seem odd with the extreme weather flipping to the warm side again, the sun angle today is the same as the third week of October. It is more acceptable to get into the 70s then than now. But with the lack of snowpack and now ice on our waterways, the sun angle is allowed to do it’s thing without obstruction in warming. Well, we will have to wait another day to get into the 70s, but we will. For a few days. Once again, we will be challenging some long standing records that still might not be breached. Below is a look.

Storm Track- The next two systems will keep on the same path, to our north. That is where the cold air is locked up. The only chance of snow will be in the form of flurries or snow showers… and mainly in the mountains. A few could get close to the northern suburbs of Baltimore… AFTER the storms pass by.

Temperature Outlook

Even with the potential that high temperatures verify warmer than the model shown below, the old records will new a tough challenge to reach.
