BALTIMORE (WJZ) — First, it was snow. Then, it was the bone chilling temperatures. Now, Maryland is bracing for even more and even worse cold temperatures.
Bob Turk has more.
An Arctic cold front is going to make its presence known in Maryland very soon.
As the colder air works its way into the region, snow could mix in with any residual precipitation.
The Arctic cold front should be positioned along the I-95 corridor by Monday morning and will blast through the area by Monday afternoon, bringing some of the coldest air we have seen in decades.
Temperatures early Tuesday morning in the Baltimore-Washington area will range from 5 to 7 degrees above zero.
Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport had a record low of 8 degrees on Jan. 7, 1988.
In the western Maryland city of Oakland, the National Weather Service is forecasting an overnight low of 21 below zero early Tuesday morning. That would break a record for that date of minus 11, set in 1988.
The coldest temperature ever recorded in Oakland was minus 40 degrees, on Jan. 13, 1912.
Back in the metro area, highs on Tuesday will only reach into the lower teens and perhaps single digits for spots north and west of Baltimore City.
Overnight lows will plummet again into the single digits both Monday night and Tuesday night while wind chills make it feel 10-15 degrees below zero!
Thursday will be a much nicer day, sunny and 40. Friday will be even better, with a high of 48 degrees.
