Discussion

Quite an amazing turnaround from the near 70 degree highs on Saturday to yesterday's snowfall in parts of the DC metro region. Today will feature weak high pressure building back into the region, but then attention will shift to a strong storm that will move into our vicinity by Wednesday night. Rain is likely to develop tomorrow afternoon and then get heavy at times tomorrow night. Rain should end early Thursday as the storm pulls away rapidly towards the Canadian Maritimes. An Arctic front will whip through the region on Friday accompanied by strong winds and possible snow showers. It’ll be noticeably colder on Friday and that chill will last right through the weekend.
