Discussion

The weather in the Mid-Atlantic region will produce a touch of summer today and tomorrow as temperatures climb to 80 degrees on both days in many locations. Mild weather continues on Thursday as well with temperatures moving well up into the 70's as a strong cold front approaches the region. That frontal system will bring us increasing clouds on Thursday and the chance for late day and nighttime showers and thunderstorms. Much cooler air will move in behind the front on Friday and there can be some steady rain accompanying the cool down to close out the work week. Cooler weather will then continue this weekend, but skies should clear on Saturday allowing for sunshine although there will be a stiff breeze. Elsewhere, an active weather pattern continues today across much of the country with a springtime snowstorm from the southern Rockies to the Northern Plains, and a severe weather threat across the central Plains from Texas to Iowa.
