Tuesday Feb 5 2019

Today is National Weather Person Day. I guess a way to honor the humans making the forecast instead of the groundhog. Contrary to Phil, many of us humans believe winter will make a return. It may be noticeable a soon as next week. But we still have a warm up under way. Today, temperatures will soar into the upper 60s. There might be some inland spots close to 70ºF. Before we get ahead of ourselves, I want to remind you of little recent history.

Baltimore Record Highs Followed By Snow

  • Feb 7 2017 = 72ºF
  • Feb 8 2017 = 72ºF
  • March 13-14 2017 2.2″ snow

Often extremes swing in both directions. Notice 2018, when snow was followed by record warmth in less than 1 week, then followed by snow within a a few weeks.

  • Feb 17 2018 2.2″ snow
  • Feb 20 2018 = 76ºF
  • Feb 21 2018 = 79ºF
  • March 6-7 2018 1.8″ snow
  • March 20-21 2018 4.9″ snow



This will be our warmest day of the week. An impressive looking storm is moving off of the Carolina coast. A cold front to our west will help pump warm air ahead of it, but bring us back down to the chill tomorrow.

A signal of the warm up, inland and on the hills its already in the upper 40s. But low to mid 30s around the icy Bay water.

Afternoon High Temperatures

If these verify, they will not be a record




Weather Animation

Rain Wednesday Afternoon Through Friday. After the initial rain, the front should lift to our north, allowing for warmer air to return briefly Thursday and Friday.






Colder air returns but the weekend will be dry.


Next Storm:

Snow possible at the start of the next event on Monday




After this warm week we should return to near ‘normal’ temperatures for the middle of February.
