After a week that felt like winter, Marylanders enjoyed a preview of spring yesterday -- and record-tying temperatures. They emerged from hibernation, shed their coats and basked in the unseasonable temperatures. Some even ice-skated amid the puddles of water at outdoor rinks. It was, they agreed, a day to spend outdoors. "Global warming has its good side," joked Kevin Bailey, 44, who walked his two mixed-breed dogs in Baltimore's Druid Hill Park. Temperatures were high across the state, but only Salisbury met a record.

Temperatures were not forecast to break above freezing on Thursday, but that's not expected to last for long as warmer weather finally returns over the weekend. The National Weather Service called for a high of 32 degrees Thursday with a northeast wind around 10 miles per hour. The low Thursday night is expected to be about 26 degrees. Some freezing drizzle is forecast for Friday morning, but then high temperatures will near the 40s. Over the weekend, high temperatures are expected to hit the 50s - normal for this time of year, but a respite from the bitter arctic cold that gripped Maryland earlier this month.

Paul Manacher of Baltimore says our local forecasters are "usually accurate." But he asks why they "invariably underestimate summer high temperatures." The NWS warning coordination meteorologist for our area, Chris Strong, says his forecasters' predictions last summer averaged a quarter-degree too high for BWI. But they underestimated downtown highs by 3 degrees. Strong says they are not allowing for enough "heat island" effect -- heat absorbed, reflected or re-emitted by buildings and pavement.

A surge of warm southern air and some sunshine brought Baltimore's first 70-degree December day in six years Monday, two degrees shy of setting a record. The mild weather is expected to continue until a cold front moves through early Wednesday, eventually bringing a return to normal temperatures. Beyond that, some weather watchers are eyeing even colder weather ahead. Southerly winds coming from the Gulf of Mexico began warming the air Sunday, and sunshine helped raise temperatures further Monday, said Jared Klein, meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office in Sterling, Va. Similar weather is forecast for the region Tuesday, with highs around 70 degrees.
