Discussion

The storm that produced a mixture of rain and snow yesterday in the immediate DC metro region and heavy snow across western Virginia is now spinning off the Northeast coast and it will actually swing an extended trough of low pressure down the Northeast coastline over the next 24 hours or so. The precipitation associated with this trough should stay to our north and east; however, and we'll just experience more wind and chill as a result of the lingering effects of this coastal storm. Once that system does exist the scene, it’ll open the door for some big changes temperature-wise for the weekend and also the early part of next week. "Spring-fever" alert for Sunday and Monday as temperatures should soar through the 50's, but a cold front on Tuesday will usher in colder air by the middle of next week.
