Throw aside the hats and gloves and pull out the shorts and t-shirts. That's what many people did as temperatures reached 70 degrees on January 29th.
Two-year-old Alysia had the right idea on Tuesday. Driving around with the top down on her toy convertible.
There's always that debate when it's appropriate to put the top down on a convertible, but on January 29th, many people decided that was the day to do it.
For five Frederick County students, they had something else in mind.
"It just started ever since last summer," said Millbrook High School Student Greg Meuser. "We just had nothing to do. We just wanted something to do, and we decided Frisbee golf and ever since then it has just been a fun time for us."
These five guys have been friends since 6th grade. They say they can find something to do whether it's 20 degrees or 70 out.
"Do you see the weather," said Millbrook High School Student Sam Knowles. "It's just great today. It's 68 degrees."
"They like it," said James Wood High School Student Bradley Skiloman. "I think it sucks I want snow. I want like two feet of snow and no school."
Frederick County students got their fair share of snow days last week. For six consecutive days, temperatures were below freezing. Now they're up in the high sixties, but are expected to drop again later this week.
"This weather whiplash," said TV3 Meteorologist Drew Tuma. "It's not all that common, but when it does happen it's a good recipe that you're going to get storms in between those two boundaries."
Meteorologist Drew Tuma says there are two essential ingredients that fuel storms.
"One warmth," said Tuma. "We got to 70 degrees today four degrees shy of the record, and two it pulls in a lot of moisture so you probably felt it a little more muggy on this January day. Those two conditions are fuel for storms."
After this storm comes through, temperatures will drop about 30 degrees. So shorts and t-shirts will be a distant memory come later this week.
