The hits from Old Man Winter will keep coming around Washington, D.C., into midweek.

After a number of March record low temperatures were set in the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday, daily record low temperatures may fall Wednesday morning.

Highs are forecast to be near around 40 on Wednesday and Thursday, which is well below the average high in the lower 50s.

Temperatures will slowly climb during the balance of the week with highs forecast to reach the 50s this weekend.

A southern storm system will be monitored for rain and possible wet snow in the local area later Thursday and Thursday night.

This Day In Weather History

New Holstein, WI (2007)
Strong thunderstorm winds blew two airplanes into one another at the local airport.

New York/MA (1819)
Two simultaneous cloudbursts, 45 miles apart; A bucket survey claimed 15" of rain fell at Catskill, NY. Highways were completely washed out. One washout started west of the old Albany Post Road and spread eastward across the road until it was 190 feet wide and 80 feet deep in a distance of 160 paces. At Westfield Valley, "suddenly the windows of heaven seemed to have been opened and the rain fell in such torrents that in less than 5 hours, Westfield River rose at least 20 feet above its usual height at low water. The river overflowed its banks with great rapidity and violence, sweeping away every bridge, fence and building which opposed its current."

Pittsburgh, PA (1872)
Cloudburst of 30 minutes followed by a flash flood. Over 133 people drowned on the north side of Butcher Run and Wood's Run.
