Discussion

Low pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coast will pull farther away this morning after lingering morning snow showers and it’ll leave behind a very chilly air mass for this time of year. High temperatures this afternoon are likely to only reach the 40 degree mark – some 15-20 degrees below normal for this date. Colder-than-normal weather will continue around here right into the weekend and at the same time a significant storm will be crossing the country. This storm will head towards the Ohio Valley on Sunday and from there it’ll begin to transfer its energy to a developing Mid-Atlantic coastal storm which could generate some rain or snow around here in the Sunday night/Monday time frame.
