Record cold moves in with Wind Chill Advisories now posted for all of Maryland. Overnight lows will be in the single digits for most with wind chill factors well below zero.
The record low for January 31st is 4 degrees which was set back in 1966. The coldest high temperature for the day is 22 degrees from 1948. Both of these are in reach as temperatures tumble fast. As of 11pm Wednesday many locations were already nearing there record lows with the north and west suburbs of Baltimore expected to fall below zero overnight.
Highs by Thursday afternoon make there way back toward 20 but barely crack the mark with tons of sunshine. Wind chill factors will be below zero through noon before things slowly but surely moderate into the afternoon hours.
By Friday we get closer to 30 degrees but bring back the chance of snow as a weak disturbance rolls through. A quick dusting to 1" is likely but no bitter cold will follow this system. Instead we will see a much needed warming trend into the weekend ahead.
By next week highs could touch 60 degrees. For more weather information download the WMAR2News Mobile App on the Apple/Android Stores. Also check us out at WMAR2News.com and our Facebook.Twitter pages.
