Welcome to the last full day of winter.
It was great to see everyone out everywhere just getting some weekend “me” time. Well Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday it will remain not just mild, but Tuesday we will be within sight of 70.
We’ve had a good deal of sunshine Sunday afternoon, however cooler with a brisk wind compared to what we experienced Saturday.
We had a chance to push away from the table and catch our winter breath. But you knew it was not going to last.
Thursday will be another mild day. Wednesday, we did get up to 57 degrees. Thursday’s forecast high is 50, but I can see it warmer if we don’t cloud up too soon.
For many of the mid-Atlantic states, especially Maryland, Delaware and northern Va., Tuesday marked our second disruptive snowfall in just three days.
We’ll continue to experience some rather mild weather around here over the next couple of days, especially Thursday and on Friday.
The record for Oct. 2 is 89 degrees, set back in 1986. We will be creeping very close to that as we head into the afternoon with highs forecast in the mid-80s.
Good morning and happy October! Tuesday certainly won’t feel like a typical October day as highs soar into the low 80s.
The theme continues: warm, muggy and unsettled as the upper-level pattern does not change very much.
Highs Tuesday should top out in the low/mid 60s while a cool air mass is still in place.
We have some dry weather Friday for the most part, and a wind out of the southwest will allow for a warmer afternoon.
