February arrives at midnight. Beware the middle weeks. Five of Baltimore's biggest snowstorms struck between the 11th and the 18th. The snowiest February was in 2003, with 40.5 inches at BWI. But days lengthen, and average daily highs climb from 42 to 48 degrees. Lows rise from 24 to 29. We reached 83 degrees on Feb. 25, 1930, but sank to minus 7 twice - in 1899 and 1934.
