Discussion

A weak frontal system will cause somewhat unsettled weather around here for the next few days and then a strong cold front will arrive at the east coast late Friday night. While there can be an occasional shower or thunderstorm over the next couple of days associated with the weak frontal system, a more organized and significant band of showers and thunderstorms is likely to arrive Friday night with the strong west-to-east moving cold front. That front may linger for a bit on Saturday morning and then it will usher in noticeably cooler air for the rest of the weekend, and the overall weather pattern will likely stay on the cool side for much of next week.

Elsewhere, winter hangs on out west. Denver received more significant accumulating snow yesterday and that was just round one for that area as another snowstorm is headed there for tonight and Wednesday with an additional half of foot or more possible. In fact, the entire region from the southern Rockies to the Northern Plains will get pounded once again with significant springtime snow accumulations over the next 48 hours or so. On Sunday, Bismarck, ND received its biggest snowstorm ever, 17.3 inches, and the New York Mets have been postponed on consecutive days - first in Minneapolis on Sunday due to snow and ice and then yesterday in Denver due to ankle-deep snow, and it doesn't look too favorable there for today or tomorrow with more wintry conditions expected.
