Discussion

Widespread cold grips much of the nation this morning with readings in the low 20's across the Florida Panhandle, single digits in I-95 corridor suburban locations, to below zero across the northern tier of states. Low pressure brushed the I-95 corridor with snow overnight and it is now pulling off the east coast and Arctic high pressure is taking its place. Today will be another bitter cold day with temperatures way below normal for this time of year. Temperatures will modify somewhat on Thursday and then quite noticeably on Friday and Saturday ahead of the next cold frontal system. That front can cause a few rain showers around here later Saturday - the mildest day of the week - and then it’ll turn moderately colder on Sunday to close out the weekend.
