Discussion

Weak high pressure will build back into the region for today and tonight, but then attention will shift to a strong storm that will move from the South into our vicinity by Wednesday night. Rain is likely to get heavy at times tomorrow night lasting into early Thursday before 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. By the way, in quite an impressive turnaround, much of the DC region received an inch or so of snow accumulation yesterday, and this followed temperatures near 70 degrees on Saturday.
