Discussion

Much milder air has moved into the Mid-Atlantic region as high pressure shifted off the east coast over the weekend and this promoted a southwesterly flow of air around here boosting temperatures into the 60’s on Sunday and likely to near 75 degrees today. Clouds will dominate the skies tonight and a shower is possible across some of the northern suburbs and some patch fog can form late at night. Temperatures will then soar to 80 degrees on Tuesday and well into the 80's on Wednesday. Thursday will continue to feature very mild conditions, but late day and nighttime showers and thunderstorms will signal the return of colder air to close out the week.

Elsewhere, the cold weather is not completely gone yet from the country. In fact, there can be quite a spring snowstorm over the next couple of days from the Rockies to the Northern Plains which will include such cities as Denver, Cheyenne and Rapid City where 6-12 inches can fall by tomorrow night. On the powerful western storm's warm southeastern flank, severe weather is likely to break out later today as well as tomorrow afternoon across the southern Plains and in southern sections of the Midwest.
