UPDATED: March 25, 2014 8:29 p.m.
LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — The calendar says it’s spring, but the ground says it’s still winter.
The mid-Atlantic region saw snow again Tuesday, the latest in a season full of ice, slush, sludge and powder.
The immediate D.C. and Baltimore metro areas got up to 2 inches of precipitation, while areas to the west and the Eastern Shore got a bit more.
As of mid-Tuesday afternoon, Dulles International Airport unofficially surpassed the previous third highest seasonal snowfall since records start there in 1962. The previous third place of 50.1 inches was set in 2002.
Snow has stopped falling in most areas, but a cold night is still ahead. The overnight low is just 27 degrees and Wednesday’s high will only be about 39.
Spring will start to move in on Thursday, when temperatures will get into the lower 50s. On Friday, a warming pattern begins, and temperatures will be in the 60s and possibly even the 70s through the weekend.
