Discussion

Following yesterday’s snowstorm, bitter cold air now grips the entire Mid-Atlantic region and temperatures today will do no better than the middle teens despite plenty of sunshine. The bitter cold weather pattern will continue for the next couple of weeks as there will be multiple Arctic air outbreaks and multiple snow threats in what will turn out to be quite an amazing stretch of winter weather. A reinforcing Arctic air outbreak will occur Thursday night and then another one early next week and that air mass will have its origins in Siberia. In addition to the cold, snow shower activity threatens the region on Thursday and then again on Saturday and a storm could impact the region early next week.
