Ahh, winter.{ } Wait, what?!!{ } Yep. Hard to believe we are starting the first full week of meteorological winter with temperatures more typically seen in Mid April (or Mid-October, take your pick).{ } With high pressure to our east and a cold front to our west, we are sandwiched in the middle while the two{ }are acting like a conveyor belt of wind pumping in from the south bringing mild temperatures and higher humidity to the Mid-Atlantic.{ } We will remain in the warm sector for another day before reality sets in.{ } While these temperatures are well above the average high of 51 at Reagan National, they are just{ }shy today of the record high of 70 degrees.{ } Tuesday's record high is 76, and I expect we will stay short of a record tomorrow as well.{ } The Mid-Atlantic is not the only place with a warm up.{ }

East Coast High Temperatures

Temps are above average across most of the country, with the largest departure in the Upper Midwest.{ } 67 today in Chicago, 70 in Indianapolis, and 76 in St. Louis.{ } Enjoy it while it lasts!!!
