BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Winter just won’t quit. After a few more inches of snow Monday, we’re in the midst of yet another blast of Arctic air.

Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram has more.

A temperature of 4 degrees was reported at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport by 6 a.m. Tuesday, breaking a record as the coldest day ever recorded in March here.

The reading was 1 degree lower than a record low for Tuesday’s date and for the entire month, 5 degrees on March 4, 1873.  That means BWI broke a 141-year-old record!

Before this week, Baltimore has not recorded single-digit temperatures in March since March 4, 2009.

Many places tied or broke record lows all over the Eastern half of the U.S.

Timeline/Temperatures:

The normal temperatures are a high of 50 and a low of 30 . Temperatures are only expected to be in the upper 20s Tuesday.

This winter, from December-February, there were 50 days below average. Last year, there were 28. The average from December-February is 43.8 degrees.
