Discussion

High pressure will build back into the region today and will stick around to begin the weekend; however, attention will then turn to the southeast US as a storm will gather strength there by early Sunday. While the storm track from that point on is still in some question, there will be a strong Mid-Atlantic storm on Sunday that could spread accumulating snows along the I-95 corridor from DC to Baltimore. Currently, the greatest likelihood for any accumulating snow in the Mid-Atlantic region is actually right here across the DC metro area on Sunday afternoon and evening while places to our north and east (e.g., Philly) appear to be on the northern fringes. A slight shift in the storm track, however, could make a big difference in results so stay tuned. Longer term, the overall pattern continues to look quite active and there will be additional threats for snow over the next few weeks.
