Discussion

The record high for today at Reagan National Airport is 69 degrees set in 1933 (66° at Dulles) and it is certainly in jeopardy. In fact, temperatures are likely to climb well up into the 70’s by later in the afternoon. A cool front will slide through by tomorrow bringing slightly cooler air into the area, but it’ll stay well above normal for this time of year. It also stays quite unsettled as more rain should return to the area by tomorrow night and the rain threat will continue on each weekend day. By Sunday, another significant warm surge will take place in the eastern US and more records could fall. Talk about a nation divided; however, at the same time the eastern states are warm, the western half of the country will be in the deep freeze. Some of that colder air will push across the Great Lakes region and into New York and New England early next week and snow could actually break out in those areas by Monday night or Tuesday. One final note, the moon will be full on Christmas Day which is actually quite a rare event. The last time the full moon fell on December 25th was 1977, and it won't happen again until 2034.
