BLOG: 70s Temps This Week!

What a day– another wonderful winter day! Wall to wall sunshine, combined with a southerly wind, helped warm us up to 63 degrees Sunday afternoon. That’s back above the average of 52 degrees again, and a baseline of our forecast for most of this upcoming week.

A weakening storm will move our way Monday night into Tuesday. It will pump even warmer air our way ahead of it with a high of 68 degrees Monday. Spotty showers are possible Monday night and Tuesday, and maybe even a thunderstorm Tuesday as it lifts through the region. But when it pulls off to the northeast, it will draw even warmer air our way. Highs are going to jump into the 70s Tuesday. Then, we have a chance of getting back into the 70s each of the next few following days.

The one concern on Wednesday is a backdoor cold front coming down from New England. If that happens, it will turn winds around to the east. An east wind going over the cold Bay and ocean water will kill our chance at 70s on Wednesday. Even if that does happen, this front will clear for the end of the week and we will be back in the 70s. Yes, we keep saying this– but it is winter!

    Hello, my name is Jasmine Whittington. I am a journalism student at The Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland College Park. I am doing a story on the weather to come, and I am in need of your expertise! Could you please help me with some of the questions I have?

    1) Does the relative heat wave this winter suggests a forecast for warm weather continuing in the spring?

    2) Moreover, is there any way to get an idea about the summer ahead?
    Exactly what kind of spring is being called for?

    3) Is this spring going to be colder, warmer, drier, harsher or different in any way — if at all — from previous falls?

    4) What kind of winter are the forecasters are calling for?

    Thank you, I hope to hear from you soon!
