Discussion

A strong cold front passed through the region overnight and the second half of the week will be seasonably cold, and it looks like a couple different low pressure areas will affect us. The first system to affect us will be a fast-moving, weak system dropping southeastward from central Canada towards the eastern Great Lakes. It could produce a few hours of snow showers here tomorrow night as the low passes by well to our north. It is limited in moisture content; however, whatever falls from this system will likely be in the form of snow. After that, we’ll be watching a southern system that should head towards the Mid-Atlantic coast early this weekend, likely generating a wintry mix here on Saturday of snow, sleet and rain. It’ll turn slightly milder again after that system clears the coast for the first couple days of next week. Elsewhere, the Pacific Northwest continues to get pounded by multiple strong storms blasting into the region from the Pacific Ocean. Insane amounts of snow are piling up in the some of the higher, westward-facing, slopes of the Cascades in Washington and Oregon.
