Chill could be a record-breaker for DC, Maryland

Posted: Updated:

The National Weather Service says overnight temperatures in Maryland and the District of Columbia could hit record lows.

The agency said Monday that temperatures early Tuesday morning in the Baltimore-Washington area will range from 5 to 7 degrees above zero.

The lowest temperature for that date at Reagan National Airport in Washington is 5 degrees, recorded in 1884.

Dulles International and Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International airports had record lows of 8 degrees on Jan. 7, 1988.

In the western Maryland city of Oakland, the National Weather Service is forecasting an overnight low of 21 below zero early Tuesday morning. That would break a record for that date of minus 11, set in 1988.

The coldest temperature ever recorded in Oakland was minus 40 degrees, on Jan. 13, 1912.
