But how long will it last?
After a winter that seemed to drag on endlessly—one that included a snowfall on the first day of spring—warmer weather has finally arrived in Laurel. But how much longer will it last? Temperatures nearby topped out at 77° Monday, a trend that's expected to continue on Tuesday with an afternoon high of about 80°. Wednesday's forecast calls mostly sunny weather again, with temperatures climbing as high as 85°. That's flip flop weather, folks. There's a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the mix for Thursday, but highs could reach 82° again before the weather cools off again Friday. Overnight lows all week are expected to be in the upper 50s and low 60s. So get outside and enjoy it while you can!

Twenty-twelve was a wild year for weather in the Washington metropolitan region. On June 29, the derecho terrorized the area, forcing President Obama to declare Montgomery County a disaster area.

Those two weather events may have been the most memorable, but according to WJLA's website, a number of weather records were set in 2012: How does the forecast for the start of 2013 look?
