So this happened. In February. Records at all 3 airports! pic.twitter.com/hP4RX0nkLP— Sue Palka FOX 5 DC (@suepalkafox5dc) February 7, 2017
Before Tuesday, the D.C. region hasn't had a 70 degree February day since 2012 and today's temperatures shattered the previous record of 64 degrees.
These spring-like temperatures will give way to a cold front Wednesday night into Thursday morning. According to FOX 5's Tucker Barnes, there is the potential for winter weather with rain transitioning to snow. Some models, he says, show heavy snow before the system moves out of the area by later Thursday morning.
Ahead of the winter storm, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for some counties in Maryland and Virginia.
