Another winter weather event has ended, and luckily, most of the region survived this one very well!
Clouds broke across the region this afternoon, allowing temperatures to rise well into the 40s. We will have some snow melt and we will have to watch for some ponding on area roadways.
Looks like a general 6-10″ of snow fell from this major winter storm, and it has now changed to freezing rain in the city and plain rain for areas to our south.
Yes, we might break another low temperature record tonight before clouds, and yes, snow arrives tomorrow.
Record cold is expected overnight as we may dip to zero in many areas. If winds really drop off and the skies clear, we could see some areas going several degrees below zero with the snow on the ground.
Brutal cold has invaded the mid-Atlantic. This morning, we tied our record low temperature of 6 degrees set back in 1943, and today’s high only made it to 18 officially at BWI.
Hard work paying off. Baltimore area students compete in WJZ’s Black History Month Oratory Competition, with one student taking top honors.
A bad night out there for anyone walking or even driving in some locations, as we have many areas that are now below freezing and have freezing rain and sleet around.
A frontal boundary became “hung up” over the region this afternoon. As a result, there was an interesting spread in temperatures, with BWI topping out around 55 degrees and D.C. tying a record high of 68 degrees.
Overall, today was very nice. We topped out above average with an official high of 46 degrees at BWI.
The winds have subsided somewhat tonight, but temperatures will still bottom out at around 12 degrees by tomorrow morning.
Well, we missed another one! Another big one. Jokingly on the air I like to say that weather and real estate have one thing in common: LOCATION. And it’s true.
