Record above-freez­ing string could ex­tend

The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — Martin Weil

Wash­ing­ton ex­tended its record-set­ting string of January days above freez­ing to 17 on Fri­day, and as of Saturday evening, it ap­peared pos­si­ble that the string would ex­tend to 18.

As of about 6 p.m. Saturday, the tem­per­a­ture had not touched the freez­ing mark of 32 de­grees since the morn­ing of Jan. 10.

The string was the long­est such pe­riod in any January since records be­gan to be kept in Wash­ing­ton in 1872.
