Spring starts tomorrow and brings a brief return to seasonable temperatures, but an echo of a winter that won't go away may not be far behind. Early next week, climate forecasters predict another in a series of intrusions of frigid Arctic air that has made for a brutal winter for the eastern United States. Temperature outlook maps from the Climate Prediction Center show an icy blue over the right half of the country, signifying a near certainty of below-normal temperatures. As the cold air dominates once again, there is a chance some moisture could move through, bringing more snow.

Temperatures were forecast to rise into the mid-40s by Wednesday morning in the Baltimore area as the rain continues, but gusty winds and possible snowflakes could still blow in by the afternoon to again slow those traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. Snow was piling up in Western Maryland and across Pennsylvania on Tuesday, with travel to the Northeast expected to be treacherous into Thanksgiving Day as the storm moves up the East Coast. Those traveling by air also faced problems, with some delays and cancellations nationwide Tuesday.

You needn't worry about cold air damaging your lungs when you exercise in cold weather. The only reports of lung damage from cold air are in people who were unable to get out of the cold, such as American gunners who lay unconscious in the frozen turrets of high-flying World War II bombers or people who were injured in automobile accidents and lay unconscious for hours in the cold.During exercise, your muscles produce so much heat that air inhaled at 40 degrees below zero will be warmed more than 100 degrees before it reaches your lungs.

If you like frigid air, deep snow and icy ponds, that was one disappointing January. But if you stretch to pay the heating bills and fear getting around on snow and ice, the month just ended in Baltimore was a blessing - mild, even balmy at times, and snow-free. And you're probably praying your good fortune carries over into February. Forget it. "There are certain changes ahead," said Mike Halpert, a meteorologist at the national Climate Prediction Center in Camp Springs. "Week 2 [of February]

The precipitation was expected to end this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.Jim Wiesmueller, a weather service forecaster in Sterling, Va., said moisture from the southwestern part of the country mixed with the cold air to create "ice pellets," or sleet.Temperatures were just below 40 degrees at rush hour last night, Wiesmueller said.

Will Baltimore ever get a decent snowfall? Some forecasters believe they're seeing a shift in continental weather patterns that could send more storms our way, starting next week. We'll be sandwiched between cold air to the north and moist air to the south. Storms tracking eastward along the boundary will throw the wet air into the cold, making snow and ice. Kids! Pajamas inside-out!

Forecasters are watching another possible mess of a light wintry mix on Friday. As the window for a big snowfall narrows, though, at least one forecaster still sees favorable snow chances in the weeks ahead. Meteorologists are watching two key climate patterns that influence storm tracks, and Friday, they are expected to butt heads, helping to keep the forecast for Maryland tricky. One indicator known as the North Atlantic Oscillation, known for sending monster snowstorms up the East Coast, is helping push some precipitation through the area.

Havre de Grace Mayor Wayne Dougherty led the way. He raised the most money. And he was the best dressed. So at the appointed hour - 10 a.m. Saturday - the mayor and dozens of others, including Scotty Hurst, Chief of the Susquehanna Hose Co., ran, walked, waddled and squealed into the Chesapeake Bay for the second annual Havre de Grace Duck Dunk. It's a fundraiser for the Havre de Grace volunteer fire company similar to the Polar Bear Plunge, Maryland's huge winter fundraiser to benefit the Special Olympics.

A springlike weekend with temperatures approaching 70 degrees is ahead, but forecasters are hypothesizing Arctic air could dip southward to push the mercury below normal late in the month. Temperatures are forecast to reach 60 degrees or higher three days in a row, Saturday through Monday, without a chance for showers until Monday evening. While that warmth is about 20 degrees above normal, it isn't all that rare. The last time BWI Marshall Airport did not break 60 degrees at some point in January was 2009.
