Temperatures are expected to approach 90 degrees.
What happened to spring? The National Weather Service is forecasting a high temperature of 88 degrees today and, according to the forecast discussion, it will really be closer to 90 in the Baltimore-Washington Metro area. If we do hit 90 degrees, the we'll set a new record. The hottest April 10 on record is 89 degrees in 1922, according to NWS.

The thunderstorms could bring fast winds and large hail, according to NWS, so be careful. Spring may return later this week as a "cold front" brings temperatures back down to the mid-60s.

Here's a look at the week's forecast, courtesy of the National Weather Service.
Seems as if we've been asking "where’s winter?" for weeks now. Well, here it is. It’s going to be so cold this week that the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a hazardous weather outlook.
