BWI, Dulles Break Decades-Old Record Low

BALTIMORE — The National Weather Service says the temperature has set new record lows at both Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall International and Dulles International airports.

The agency says the temperature was 3 degrees at BWI just before 6 a.m. Tuesday with a wind chill of minus 16. Dulles recorded a low of 1 degree around 7:30 a.m. The previous records for the day at both airports were set in 1988 at 8 degrees.

Reagan National Airport just outside Washington had so far just missed its record low temperature of 5 degrees set in 1884. The airport got down to 6 degrees early Tuesday.

Temperatures in the region are expected to go up during the day Tuesday, but not much. With the wind chill, temperatures should feel at or below zero in most locations.
