This latest temperature spike is another striking indicator of the Arctic's rapidly changing climate.

We’ve already hit our high temperature for the day, so leave your jacket at home at your own peril. It’ll be 30 degrees colder today than yesterday.

Temperatures are close to 30 degrees cooler tomorrow but still a little above normal.

It tied for the second warmest February day ever observed.

The cherry trees around the Tidal Basin aren't as far along as they were at this point last year, but we're seeing signals an early bloom is possible.

Temperatures make a run at record highs near 80 today.

These temperatures are more typical of May than February.

In the East, February heat records are being broken and flowers are starting to bud. Meanwhile in the West, it snowed in Los Angeles.

It was particularly beautiful but slightly eerie.
