January 02, 2000

The new millennium was off to a sunny start Sunday as the temperature in Hagerstown reached a high of 68 degrees, breaking an 83-year-old record, according to Hagerstown Weather Observer Greg Keefer.

Keefer's Web site lists the previous record for Jan. 2 at 64 degrees in 1916.

Last year at this time, Washington County was in the grips of a snow and ice storm. Nearly 2 inches of snow fell, along with sleet and freezing rain, Keefer's Web Site indicated.

Warm temperatures are expected to continue throughout the week with highs in the 60s on Monday, 40s on Tuesday and 50s on Wednesday, said forecasters with the National Weather Service office in Sterling, Va.

Monday is expected to be sunny and warm with southwest winds around 15 miles per hour.

Showers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday.
