    A Warm Wednesday in Store for Much of the East

    After the cold start to the week, temperatures will rebound to above seasonable levels by Wednesday along the Atlantic Seaboard.

    Wednesday is sometimes referred to as hump day. For those that work Monday to Friday or have school, it is the half-way mark to the weekend.

    The temperature trend this week in much of the East will resemble a camel's hump with the highest readings occurring around Wednesday and the lowest temperatures Monday and Friday. So after Wednesday, it is down hill from there with the warmth at least.


    Temperatures started the day Monday in the teens and 20s over the Appalachians and hovered just above the freezing mark in most major I-95 cities.

    By Tuesday afternoon temperatures had recovered from their lowest levels of the season so far in many cases from Monday.

    However, by Wednesday afternoon, temperatures will be 30 to 40 degrees higher when compared to the cold start to the week.

    Monday Morning Low Temperatures (*Coldest morning so far this season.)

    Monday Morning Low
    Saranac Lake, N.Y.
    Berlin, N.H.
    Hartford, Conn.
    Bradford, Pa.
    Elkins, W.Va.
    New York City
    Washington, D.C.

    Highs Wednesday are projected to range from the mid-50s in the mountains to the mid-60s along much of the East Coast.

    Another front will swing through the area Thursday into Friday with some rain and wind. However, winds are not expected to be quite as strong, when compared to a system that hit last week around the same time with downed trees, power lines and significant flight delays at some major airports.

    Most gusts late this week will range from 35 to 45 mph, compared to the 50 to 60 mph punch last week.

    The air coming in for the start of next weekend is not quite as cold as the air that started this week. But, factoring in the wind and other conditions it will feel quite chilly again.
