The bizarrely warm temperatures this weekend broke five records, including one that was 124 years old and another that stands as the warmest ever during meteorological winter in Baltimore, according to the National Weather Service. First, Saturday's high of 71 degrees at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport smashed the record of 62 degrees for Dec. 21, set in 2011. Forecasters had predicted a closer brush with the record, but the day ended up 27 degrees above the normal high for the date and nine degrees above the record.

You don't need a groundhog to tell you which way winter is going. Temperatures are expected to climb into the 60s Tuesday and Wednesday - not into record-breaking territory, but enough to extend lunch breaks into the afternoon, confuse hibernating crocuses and cause Punxsutawney Phil to throw up his paws in disgust. "These are unpredictable times," said Debbie Ricigliano, a horticultural consultant for the University of Maryland Home and Garden Information Center. "I've been here since 1997, and I don't remember a time like this.

Tim McFadden stepped outside his glass-blowing studio to cool off. At 3 p.m., the temperature along that particular stretch of Eastern Avenue was only 96 degrees. "It feels like it's about 70 out here," he says. And no, McFadden wasn't joking. Inside his studio, the thermometer on the "cool" wall, the one farthest from the kilns, was pushing 120 Fahrenheit. Directly in front of the roaring ovens, where McFadden spends much of his afternoons and evenings spinning molten glass the color of cotton candy onto metal rods, it was even hotter.

NEW YORK -- Lowering a newborn's body temperature after birth reduces risk of brain damage and death for babies who are deprived of oxygen before or during delivery, a new study has found. Within hours of being born, newborns in the study were placed on cooling blankets that lowered their body temperature to about 92 degrees. The blankets, which had water circulating through them, were set at 41 degrees. After three days, the babies were gradually warmed to a normal body temperature. The study of 208 infants at 15 medical centers was reported by researchers in the Neonatal Research Network of the Institute of Child Health and Human Development, and appears today in The New England Journal of Medicine.

A group of Baltimore doctors say the century-old belief that 98.6 degrees constitutes a person's normal body temperature should be discarded because, well, it is wrong.Researchers from the Baltimore Veterans Affairs Medical Center looked at oral temperatures taken from 148 healthy people and found their average reading to be 98.2 degrees -- two notches below the little red arrow that signals "normal" on a glass thermometer.More importantly, a reading between 96 and 99.9 degrees would fall into the normal range for most people.

Why do onions need to be refrigerated after cutting? Wouldn't it be just as well to put the onion in a container or baggy and put it back in the pantry? And does an opened container of ketchup need to be refrigerated? You refrigerate a cut onion for several reasons. One is that cutting into anything introduces bacteria, which will grow more quickly and cause spoilage faster at room temperature. When you cut the onion, you also rupture the cells, which leak moisture and cause spoilage.

Behind every famous number lies a story. And in this season of sickness, when the thermometer frequently emerges from the bathroom cabinet, few numbers in medicine are as familiar as 98.6 - the normal temperature of the human body. Celebrated in song and enshrined for more than a century in schoolbooks and medical texts, 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is the benchmark many of us use to determine who goes to school or work and who stays in bed. There's just one little problem: 98.6, it turns out, is a medical myth.
