Discussion

An Arctic front has passed through the region and there are snow showers immediately behind the front that will last into the latter part of the morning. The afternoon will bring about clearing skies, but with windy and cold conditions and high temperatures struggling to pass 40 degrees. Strong Canadian high pressure will push towards the east coast over the next couple of days and it is anchoring an Arctic air mass that will result in some of the coldest temperatures yet this season across portions of the East and Deep South. The unseasonal chill should last through Thursday, but then as the high approaches the east coast late this week, the low-level flow will back around to a southwesterly direction and temperatures will rebound quite nicely by the weekend.
