February temperatures should be 3 to 5 degrees warmer than normal. Like January and December, we suspect some warmer periods will overperform again, which will end up pushing the month above average. Looking into next week, for example, D.C. may hit 60 degrees. That’s certainly not February-like. Historically, the average temperature for February is just 39 degrees (3 degrees warmer than January).
