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 into our vicinity by Wednesday night. Rain is likely to develop late tomorrow and then get heavy at times tomorrow night. Rain is still possible 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 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.
