No, you didn't sleep all the way through to April. It's actually in the high 60s in the end of January.
Forecaster Heather Sheffield at the National Weather Service's office in Sterling, VA, said the high temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday in the Baltimore area are due to a high pressure system off the East Coast.
But before you go trading snowshoes for skateboards, Sheffield said, expect a cold front to put a damper on those plans, with a 40 percent chance of rain by Wednesday night and a 70 percent chance of rain on Thursday. Temperatures, however, will only go as low as 34 degrees on Friday night, according to the NWS forecast.
Temperatures have been mild all winter, and snow has been light. On average, Baltimore sees 18.2 inches of snow every season, according to the National Weather Service. This winter, the measuring station at BWI Airport counted 1.3 inches in January and trace amounts in October and December.

"We've had a couple of pushes of cold air, but I would say pretty much since the end of October when some of us had this snow, we've had this pattern locking the cold air in the North so we don't get the chance to experience it," Berk said.
Berk compared the oscillation effect to "counting cards at the black jack table" and said storms might be in the cards for the Baltimore area.
"We've built up this above normal pattern for such a long period of time, you have to expect the bottom's going to come crashing on us," Berk said. Ironically, it's colder than normal temperatures that help to fuel severe weather in the spring."
No snow also means no snow days. That may be bad news for students, but good news for The school system used six of its seven snow days last school year and faced numerous delays and other snow-related impacts.
The county has only taken two snow days this year, during the cleanup following at the beginning of the school year.
"You're going to jinx it. I shouldn't even be talking to you about this," joked Charles Herndon, a school system spokesman. He continued, "In those winters that we have a lot of inclement weather, not only does it impact our budget, it keeps children out of school, out of class more often. We're all hoping our good fortune continues."
On the flip side, the warm winter is also hurting businesses that thrive this time of year. In December, The Baltimore Sun reported on troubles at western Maryland ski resorts, where the season got a slow start.
Sheffield said current projections call for a 40 percent chance of above-normal temperatures in February, and roughly average precipitation.
Berk didn't have statistics, but a hunch that we'll see substantial snowfall before the winter is out.
"You've got to have faith in the flakes," he said. "I'm not saying we'll have a blizzard but I do believe we'll have a shot at getting some snow."
