Over the weekend we experienced the coldest temperatures of this cold/winter season, but lows in the 20s and highs in the 40s are really about where temperatures should be for this time of year. The brief preview of winter will be short-lived as high pressure builds from the southwest and a surge of unseasonably mild air overspreads the Mid Atlantic and northeast states during Christmas week. A weak cold front will approach Baltimore and Washington on Tuesday with little impact as it dissipates over the area. Meanwhile, a warm front will surge northward and send temperatures on Christmas Eve day into the 70s in central Maryland. This will be followed by a cold front that will usher in cooler, but still unseasonably mild, air on Christmas and into the weekend.
