tuesday’s warmth nine degrees above old dc record


of course tuesday’s temperature set a record. how could it not? it’s said that records were made to be broken, and if any warm winter-day record in washington was poised to disintegrate, it was the one for tuesday, the 7th of february. the record for washington for feb. 7, was an almost laughably low 64 degrees. every other february day has reached a higher temperature at some time. of all the month’s daily records for warmth, that for feb. 7 was the lowest. in fact, even in january, a colder month, records show no day on which the mercury in some year did not climb higher than 64. so any reading of 65 or above on tuesday was going to set a record. the likelihood of a new record was obvious by noontime when the reading at reagan national airport was already 63 degrees. by 3 p.m. washington
