I have heard a number of complaints about this winter being too cold, having too much snow and questions about when it will end. My answer, not soon enough. I'm tired of it too, so I decided to make myself happy and look at some of the seasonal data over the past 5 March months dating from 2009 to 2013.
After experiencing record cold temperatures last night, that doesn't necessarily mean this will continue to be a cold month, or even a colder than average month. Remember, the average high at the beginning of March is in the 50s and by the end it's in the low 60s, so while the region was over 20 degrees off the pace on Tuesday, it's going to feel amazing once it gets back to the seasonal average this weekend.
Take a look at the past 5 years. I put this graphic together to show you the number of days that recorded temperatures at 60°F or higher at Reagan National Airport. 2011 recorded 7 days at 60°F or higher, with the highest temperature recorded for the month at 80°F. After the past 48 hours, I could deal with that.
Even 2009, which started eerily similar to this March with 5.5" of snow and temperatures in the teens recorded 8 days with highs at 60°F or better. Four of those days were 70°F or higher! March 2009 was colder than normal for the month, but throw in a few 60 and 70 degree days and I think we can deal with that.
Unfortunately, I wouldn't look to March 2012 as the baseline. With 23 days at or above 60°F, 13 days at or above 70°F and 4 days at or above 80°F, the month wound up 10 degrees above average, and was the warmest March on record. Oddly enough, March 2012 was so warm it tied the average April monthly temperature!
Even if it doesn't warm up considerably in the next week or two (which it isn't forecast to), you still have a few things to look forward to. First off, we Spring Forward this Sunday, so the sun will be setting after 7pm. So long sun glare on our commutes home!
Then of course, Spring begins on March 20th. Finally, Cherry Blossoms are right around the corner! The forecast for the peak bloom is on the 4th of April, so you can add that to your countdown list.
A bitter blast of winter hit D.C. hard Monday and Tuesday with a fresh coating of snow and bitter cold temperatures. We woke up to a range of 3-9" of snow across the region. Here's a look at the snow cover in the Mid-Atlantic.
With a blanket of snow on the ground, it acts like a refrigerator and keeps us cold. Snow has very high albedo, a measure of reflectivity. As the sun shines down on earth, the snow is an efficient reflector and much of the energy "bounces" back into space preventing us from warming up much.
The effect is a lot like wearing white clothing in the summer versus a black outfit. Which would you be more comfortable in? Black absorbs the sun's energy (I plan to wear black the rest of the week, BTW... haha). So, with nothing but white on the ground, temperatures dropped to all time record lows this morning.
Dulles dropped to -1 degree which is not only a daily record, but also ties the coldest temperature ever recorded in the month of March. The old record was set March 15, 1993.
Baltimore Washington International Airport broke both records with a low temperature of 4 degrees. The old record there was 5 degrees set on March 4, 1873. Washington, D.C. did not set a record with the low temperature of 14 degrees at Reagan National Airport (D.C.'s official measuring location), but it is the lowest temperature ever recorded in March since the station was moved from it's downtown location in 1945, according to the National Weather Service.
The good news is that today will be the coldest of the week and we will slowly warm up into the weekend. However, as we take a peek at next week.....
(WJLA) - Road crews in Virginia and Maryland are tackling snow covered side streets and neighborhoods Tuesday. as many side streets are still covered after Monday's winter storm.
Virginia and Maryland officials are warning drivers to be careful on side streets, when coming to a stop and when making turns.
As seen in photos sent to our Facebook page from around the area, there is virtually no bare pavement on these two Prince William County roads. And in Reston, one road is just a sheet of ice.
Meanwhile, in Chevy Chase, snow has just been pushed out of the way, leaving a thick coating of ice on many secondary roads.
Fuller Street in Columbia Heights was virtually untouched, as were the sidewalks around the former Ambassador of Spain’s residence. North Arlington roads remain spotty with patches of slush and ice.
WASHINGTON (AP/WJLA) - Temperatures have reached record lows at two airports in the mid-Atlantic region.
The National Weather Service reports that Dulles International Airport broke a record two days in a row. On Monday, the temperature dipped to 1 degree just before midnight, breaking a record of 12 degrees for the day set in 1980. Early Tuesday, the temperature reached 0 degrees, breaking a 6-degree record for that day set in 1980, though that record is not yet official.
At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the temperature reached 5 degrees on Monday, breaking a 10-degree record set in 2009.
Amid the record-breaking temperatures, at Serve Manassas in Virginia -- a shelter with 92 beds -- workers had to turn away those looking for a warm place to stay. Meanwhile, local churches opened emergency hypothermia shelters to make room.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The seemingly endless winter dumped a half a foot snow on the ground in parts of the South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, and many areas Tuesday morning saw something even more unusual in March: a blast of arctic air that sent temperatures plummeting into the single digits.
Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport broke a 141-year-old record low temperature, reaching 4 degrees. The National Weather Service said the low reached early Tuesday broke a 5-degree record set on the day in 1873. It was also a record low for the month of March. Dulles International Airport - also outside Washington - tied a 1993 record for the month at -1 degree.
Both airports broke record lows two days in a row.
Schools and government offices along the East Coast were closed Tuesday or delayed opening. And Virginia State Police said slickened roads were factors in three traffic deaths.
Blame it on a return of the "polar vortex."
"That is the buzzword this winter, the polar vortex. That cold air just kind of migrates around the poles and the extreme northern latitudes all the time," said Jim Lee, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. "The jet stream enables that colder air to move down the East Coast."
Monday's snowstorm followed a pattern that's become routine. Schools and government offices were closed. Federal workers stayed home - the fourth weather-related shutdown this season. Young adults gathered on the sloppy, slushy National Mall for a semi-organized, afternoon snowball fight.
Tourists, who flock to the nation's capital 365 days a year, were seeking out whatever activities they could find.
The National Air and Space Museum was the only Smithsonian institution open, and it drew a crowd. Among the visitors were Russ Watters, 60, of St. Louis, and his 14-year-old son, Seth, who was touring Washington with his 8th-grade class.
"We're trying to find stuff that's open, so this is open," Watters said.
The storm had a major effect south of the Mason-Dixon line. Governors declared states of emergency in Virginia and Tennessee, where there were hundreds of traffic accidents and tens of thousands of power outages. Nearly 3,000 flights were canceled Monday.
In Falls Church, Va., daredevils took advantage of another snow day by sledding down a steep hill behind an elementary school. Maya Luera, 11, said she wouldn't be so happy in June, when the school year will be extended because there's been so much snow.
"I'm more of a summer person, so I'd rather have more free time in the summer than the winter," she said.
(WJLA) - It didn’t really matter what you were driving – this side street in Anacostia was so slick that all drivers had a tough time getting up and down the hill.
Now, the cleanup is on all over D.C., with special attention being given to the sidewalks around city schools.
"It's still a lot of snow...we hope it's the last one -- it takes a toll on your back," says snow removal worker Morris Henderson.
We spotted dozens of snow plows working to clear the streets, but under all of that snow is a layer of ice as temperatures drop and digging becomes even harder.
"I believe I am hitting ice where the pedestrians have gone up and down," says D.C. resident Judith Mangubat.
A team of volunteers from SnowCrew is clearing the snow away from the van of a disabled resident who logged on to the group’s new website to ask for help.
"Help them get to work, to the doctors appointment, to the pharmacy, to the food store...whatever they need," says volunteer Joseph Porcelli.
So if you plan to head out come morning, D.C. government has a way that you can look at the main roads in your area. Click on the traffic cams at Snow.DC.gov so you can see for yourself.

(WJLA) - For Keith Scott, his nephew Gerrod, and countless other Northern Virginia residents, the race is on to clear a path.
The latest in a string of winter storms dumped several inches of snow in Scott’s neighborhood on Monday. Now, residents are moving fast as temperatures are expected to dip into the single-digits overnight.
What’s flaky and fluffy now will soon be frozen and icy. Crews positioned at area schools are working feverishly so drivers and pedestrians alike can safely navigate to class.
But the process takes time, and while they’re making progress at Herndon High School, just down the road, Herndon Elementary hasn’t been touched.
In our region’s effort to dig out, our first line of defense starts with people like Jeff Penn:
"I'm plowing up this snow, trying to make it easy for people to get around."
He knows taming the storm will be a challenge with the layer of ice underneath the snow.
Meanwhile in Bowie, the storm led to a tragedy in a cul-de-sac near Glenn Dale Road. A woman described by a neighbor as older and in good shape reportedly had a heart attack from shoveling at this home.
Prince George’s County Fire says that she later died.
There is also danger on the roads after a day littered with accidents like this overturned tractor trailer on Route 50, and as night falls, things are becoming scary again.
"Certainly the colder temperatures and the possibility of icy conditions, it's a dangerous combination," says Lora Rakowski, spokesperson for the Maryland State Highway Administration.
At the MDSHA operations center, they are monitoring snow everywhere from the Eastern Shore to the western mountains – and D.C. in between.
The concern now is road surface temperatures becoming so cold that regular road salt won't work.
"Salt is generally effective to about 20 degrees, and into the teens," explains Rakowski.
"The closer I get to get to my neighborhood, the worse the roads are getting," says Bowie resident Monica Williams.
Walking is no picnic either.

4:45pm: The snow has come to an end and most warnings have been cancelled. Thank you for reading our live blog, this will be our last post.
3:00pm: The Winter Storm Warning has been cancelled for the District and surrounding counties. Southern Maryland (Calvert, St. Mary's and Charles counties) and will likely be dropped early this evening. Temperatures will continue to fall with overnight single digits lower teens.
12:46pm: One last moderate snow band will push through the D.C. Metro over the next hour and a half. Snowfall rates in this band are around an inch per hour with isolated rates to two inches per hour.
11:46am: Meteorologist Mike Stinneford is reporting around 6 inches at his house around Front Royal, VA.
11:40am: And then you see this... A tractor trailer flipped on its side on Route 50 in MD. Yikes!
11:35am: This is always promising...
Plows are out clearing our streets. pic.twitter.com/uwdo3yjZt2— DDOT DC (@DDOTDC) March 3, 2014
11:31am: This gives you a pretty good idea of what your car windshield looks like if you haven't been outside yet. Mine just happened to be coated with ice too.
11:23am: Here is the latest link to the NWS snowfall reports below. The highest total so far looks like Frederick, MD at 7". Most other locations are 3-5" thus far.
11:17am: Driving conditions are quite hazardous across the area. I almost spun out going 5 mph, though my car is terrible in the snow. Regardless, I wouldn't recommend going out there in a vehicle! This shot was taken by WUSA 9's Peggy Fox.
11:00am: Here's a nice picture from one of my old college friends of the snow drifting on the roof of his building in NW D.C.
10:48am: I just headed outside to check on my car parked outside out station as we were told we could move it into the garage and the doors were frozen shut.
I basically was trying my hardest not to rip the handle off the door and eventually managed to pry it open. There is a coating of ice on everything and snow on top, making for very slick conditions not only on my car but also on the roadway. I could actually see a layer of ice beneath the snow as I was walking down the street.
My best advice is to stay home and don't go driving anywhere! I think delays and closings will definitely be the case tomorrow as well since temperatures should be in the teens all night. I'm not sure the road crews will have an easy time clearing prior to the morning commute. Have fun out there today and be safe! - Alex
9:52am: Here's our old colleague retired Meteorologist Bob Ryan's permanent snowman in his backyard, getting a little more snow for the end of the season.
9:47am: Interesting tweet from Reagan National Airport stating no planes have operated from that location today. Makes sense since our building is right in the flightpath and I haven't heard one all day!
9:37am: Chills are down into the single digits with temperatures in the teens to lower 20s and winds at 10-15 mph gusting to 25 mph. Adam Caskey reported 3.25" just north of Ballston in Arlington, VA. Please tweet me or share on Facebook your snowfall totals! Thank you!
Single digit wind chills... something we'll experience all day here on March 3rd. pic.twitter.com/QZ0ZUDqOwe— Alex Liggitt (@alexliggitt) March 3, 2014
9:26am: Stormscan is showing the extent of the snow as of 9am. Areas of moderate snow continue to fall across the D.C. Metro and will do so through Noon. Heaviest snow is south and east of D.C. right now.
Snow will taper off by the early afternoon north and west of D.C. and closer to 3pm around the D.C. Metro. Highest totals still appear like they will be realized south of D.C.
8:49am: Not only have flights been affected but trains have been cancelled as well today. Here's a photo from Union Station.

8:45am: Be sure to check out our HD WeatherBug cameras through the day. WeatherBug actually just tweeted an interesting fact! Just four months away from the 4th of July!
8:36am: The record snowfall for this date at Reagan National Airport is 7.1" set in 1960. As of 7am, the airport has only recorded 0.6", but I'm certain there's well over an inch at the airport at this point.
This actually makes for 20" of snow for the year at Reagan, which has only happened 5 of the past 30 years. Make that 6 out of 31 years!
8:30am: Oddly enough Dulles Airport is still open, at least the runways are, although many flights are cancelled. The airport still announced via twitter that many international flights will still be scheduled today.
Frederick, MD: 4.0"
New Market, MD - 3.0"
Damascus, MD - 4.0"
Germantown, MD - 3.0"

WASHINGTON (AP) - Winter kept its icy hold on much of the country Monday, with snow falling and temperatures starting to plummet from the Mid-Atlantic states up to the East Coast.
Snow began covering a thin layer of ice in the nation's capital early Monday, driven by a blustery wind that stung faces of those who ventured outside. Officials warned people to stay off treacherous, icy roads - a refrain that has become familiar to residents in the Midwest, East and even Deep South this year.
The latest frigid blow of the harsh winter threatened as much as 10 inches of snow by the end of the day in Washington, Baltimore and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic region. Up to 6 inches of snow was predicted to the north in Philadelphia, where a light dusting fell early in the day, while nearly a foot of snow was expected in parts of New Jersey.
Schools were canceled, bus service was halted in places and federal government workers in the DC area were told to stay home Monday.
"We're tired of it. We're sick of it," said Martin Peace, a web developer from the Washington suburb of Arlington, Va.
He and his wife were walking on the National Mall with their young daughter Sunday before the frigid weather blew in. Both bemoaned the number of snowy days this year.
"It's been hard with a baby being stuck in the house," said Nicole Peace, who works in human resources. "We don't really get the day off, but then we have to work from home with the baby, which is hard."
The forecasts were enough to shut much of Washington down. The federal government closed its Washington-area offices Monday, with non-emergency personnel are granted excused absences for the day.
School systems in Baltimore, Washington and many suburban areas were closed, as were all Smithsonian museums except for the National Air and Space Museum. However, the U.S. Supreme Court was expected to be open and had arguments scheduled for Monday.
The wintry precipitation moved across much of the nation Sunday, bringing a mix of freezing rain and heavy snow to central and eastern states. Authorities warned of possible power outages and flight disruptions from weather that could affect millions.
Nearly 3,000 flights in the United States were canceled early Monday, according to flight tracking site FlightAware.com. The bulk of the problems were at airports in Washington, New York and Philadelphia. There are more than 30,000 flights in the United States on a typical day.
In central Kentucky on Monday morning, vehicles moved slowly and quietly on roads that were mostly snow covered and slushy despite plows going through. The lines separating lanes were mostly invisible under the snow and ice, and at least a few cars had slid off the roadways.
In Ohio, crews in Cincinnati treated roads as a mix of freezing rain and snow fell late Sunday.
Earlier in the day, Patty Lee was among those braved treacherous conditions, driving some 20 miles from Cincinnati to suburban Blue Ash for a job interview. She joked that her first job test was making it through the icy parking lot without falling down.
"The roads are deteriorating pretty quickly," she said after returning to Cincinnati.
A suspension bridge over the Ohio River between Cincinnati and Kentucky was closed Sunday because of ice covering its hard-to-treat metal grid deck.
Freezing rain and sleet moved across Kentucky, making road travel treacherous Sunday. Officials warned residents to avoid unnecessary travel. Parts of the state could receive up to 8 inches of sleet and snow through Monday. Churches throughout the state canceled services.
Parts of West Virginia could also get up to a foot of snow. That sent residents on a hunt for food, water and supplies.
Linda McGilton of Charleston said she tries to be prepared but she also was not concerned.
"I don't try to panic. It doesn't do any good," McGilton of Charleston said as she unloaded a grocery cart outside the Kroger store.
Richmond, Va., was expected to get as many as 7 inches of snow Monday. Katilynn Allan, 22, bemoaned the city's unpredictable weather but said she was not too worried about driving if she had to make the short commute to her job as a financial planner.
"It's not too bad," said Allan. "You just have to take it slow when there is ice on the road.
(WJLA) – Just when we thought the season of snow had finally melted away, more flakes are in the making. The wintry forecast has many of us longing for the dog days of summer.
“Going back to the snow is a little disappointing,” said Arlington resident Caitlin Leach. “I have bundle up in my parka and [wear] two pairs of gloves and big boots to walk Lincoln every day,” she continued while watching her pup take a spin around the dog park.
She and many others, on two legs and four, crowed into Clarendon’s James Hunter Park on Sunday afternoon.
They were soaking up the sun before Old Man Winter started howling again.
“We’ve been stuck inside for most of her life,” said new mother Heather Raeburn of Arlington. Her daughter was born in November.
“I’m not happy,” she says about the snow. Fatima Sulaiman isn’t happy either.
“We’re just taking advantage while we can,” she said of the temporary warm-up.
Her two youngest boys enjoyed the milder weather in costume before stuffing themselves into snowsuits.
“They have a flair for the dramatic I guess,” she laughed while watching her sons dressed as a monkey and lion whiz by on scooters.
Russell Solomon of Arlington is taking a swing at spring literally.
“It’s perfect weather right now,” he said while playing tennis nearby in Lyon Village Park.
“It’s a nice day, but it’ll be cold tomorrow,” he continued.
We may be far from regular outdoor tennis and swimming weather, but a pool shop in Gaithersburg is helping fight our winter weather woes.
“What this is 44,000 pounds of swimming pool salt,” pointed out Contemporary Watercrafters General Manager Howard Weiss. “Normally it would sit here for a couple months until pool season starts, but we’re happy to sell it now.”
Pool salt is an alternative deicer.
“It’s the last place around that has salt,” added Brian McCarthy. He owns a landscaping company and was on a scavenger hunt for salt until now.
The salt shortage is the worst he’s seen in his 32-year career.
“Prior to this it was 2009, 2010 which the storms were bigger then, but not as frequent,” said the owner of McCarthy Ground Maintenance Incorporated.
Back at the dog park, families are saying it’s time Old Man Winter throw us a bone.
Temperatures have crashed from the 50s and 60s into the 40s and 30s across the region as of 5pm this evening. As we head later into the overnight hours, enough cold air will filter in that precipitation will change to freezing rain and sleet before finally changing to snow in the early morning hours.
At this time, it appears the changeover to freezing rain and sleet will occur first north of D.C. closer to 10pm and the D.C. Metro by 11pm or Midnight. Looking at some of the latest models, light sleet may accumulate for a few hours before a changeover to snow by 4-5am in the D.C. Metro. The change will continue by 6-7am south of D.C.
The heaviest snowfall accumulations should occur from 7am through Noon, with the potential for snowfall rates of 1-2" per hour. So when you wake up tomorrow and do not see very much snow on the ground, don't be shocked. There will still be plenty of slick spots with sleet and light snow through the early morning, so major travel disruptions are likely. Temperatures should be in the 20s by sunrise tomorrow.
Snow should hang around through the early afternoon before exiting by the early evening. By the time this system departs, we think a general 4" to 6" of snow will be possible in the D.C. Metro and points north to the Mason-Dixon line. South of D.C., higher amounts are possible, with 6" to 10" as our range in those locations. Isolated spots may even see higher amounts.
The 4" to 6" range in the Metro and points north seems plausible given higher precipitation totals as of late have shifted south of D.C. It appears some of the heavier precipitation will enter areas such as Culpeper, east to Fredericksburg/Stafford and Southern Maryland. This is where we have set of the 6" to 10" zone. Our thought is that plenty of cold air will be available when the heaviest precipitation enters the region.
Something to note, however, is if that band shifts a mere 30 miles to the north, the Metro could receive some of the higher totals. This is something we will be watching very closely as the system evolves.
There is also the potential for sleet to hang around a little longer, which could potentially hamper snowfall accumulations. This will be something else we will be keeping in mind.
Regardless, this is a high impact event with travel disruptions and plenty of cancellations.
WASHINGTON (AP/ WJLA) - District of Columbia officials have declared a snow emergency will go into effect early Monday. Vehicles parked on snow emergency routes will be ticketed and towed.
Several other area jurisdictions in Virginia and Maryland have also declared a snow emergency.
Metro has announced that all MetroBus lines and routes will be suspended Monday morning. Metro has also suspended its MetroAccess paratransit service for Monday. Buses will continue running through the last scheduled trips Sunday night.
D.C. officials announced Sunday that the snow emergency regulations will begin at 7 a.m. Monday. The D.C. Department of Public Works and Department of Transportation will move cars off snow emergency routes so that snow can be cleared from curb to curb.
Parking restrictions will remain in effect until officials lift the order.
The fines for parking on a snow routes during emergencies are $250 for the violation and $100 for towing fees. Drivers are also charged $20 per day as a storage fee until cars are claimed.
Metro says it will monitor weather and road conditions on Monday to make a decision of when it will be safe to restore service.
The meeting of Metro's Accessibility Advisory Committee scheduled for Monday has been canceled and will be rescheduled.
MARC statement: No MARC Train Service on any line tomorrow. A decision about service for Tuesday will be made Monday evening.
VRE statement: VRE will not operate any train service tomorrow Monday, March 3 and our offices will be closed.
