Daffodils next to Route 50(Updated at 12:40 p.m.) Just two weeks after several inches of snow fell on parts of Arlington, Reagan National Airport has recorded the area’s first >80 degree thermometer reading in 2013.

As of noon today, the weather station at DCA reported a temperature of 81 degrees. The mercury actually hit 80 yesterday afternoon, as pointed out by ABC 7 meteorologist Alex Liggitt.

The temperature is predicted to keep climbing tomorrow, with Weather.com predicting a high of 90 degrees on Wednesday.

Update at 2:05 p.m. — In another sign of the season, Arlington County paramedics have been dispatched to Arlington National Cemetery for a patient suffering a possible heat stroke. Such calls are common during the summer, but are much less common during early April.
