Discussion

A strong cold front has passed through the region ushering in much cooler air for today and the weekend, and weather conditions will remain quite unsettled as a coastal low pressure system forms along the now stalled out front. Showers will linger around here through tomorrow night as a slow-moving nor’easter strengthens along the frontal boundary zone over the next 24 hours or so and it'll remain quite windy and cool. In fact, the air will actually be cold enough farther north for some snow to fall from this coastal low in the interior higher elevations of the Northeast US. Strong Canadian high pressure will take better control of our weather on later Sunday and Monday with increasing amounts of sunshine expected, but it’ll still be rather cool for this time of year. Milder air works its way to the Mid-Atlantic region by the middle of next week.
