WASHINGTON — The calendar may say February, but it will feel a lot warmer in the next couple of days.
Temperatures will be nearly 30 degrees above normal this week and we could set some record highs.
On Tuesday, the temperature is forecast to top out at 75 degrees, which would be one degree below the record. The temperature is expected to top out at 77 degrees on Wednesday, which would break the previous record for Feb. 21 by two degrees.
The average high @Reagan_Airport is now 48. Every day this week will be warmer than average but Tuesday and Wednesday will be exceptionally warm – near records, in fact. Spread the word @DMVFollowers that there are 2 days ahead worth leaving work early. pic.twitter.com/IOXZO7ODMG
