Fast Forward to Spring
No daffodils will be in bloom, but temperatures near 70 today and tomorrow may make you think it's late April rather than early February. These temperatures are some 25 degrees above normal.
How unusual is warmth of this magnitude in February? Over the past 10 Februarys, the high temperature has exceeded 60 degrees 32 times (an average of 3.2 days per month) at Reagan National Airport. During this same period, the high temperature exceeded 70 degrees only 5 times (or once every other year). So, exceeding 60 in February is not that extraordinary, but topping 70, especially this early in the month, is somewhat of a rarity. Will it happen not once, but twice? We'll know soon!
