Discussion

Our bitter cold air mass will modify some today, but temperatures will remain below normal right through Friday. Milder air will push into the region on Saturday and temperatures will respond by climbing well up into the 40's. There is a one storm to monitor as the week progresses as low pressure will organize in the Southeast US. This storm will move off the Southeast US coast and then will ride to the northeast coming quite close to the I-95 corridor at the end of the work week. There is the chance that it could generate some snow or rain shower activity in the region as we close out the work week.

Looking ahead to next week, somewhat colder air will return for Sunday, but that should be rather short-lived as it'll turn milder again early next week. Later next week, however, colder air will again head towards the Mid-Atlantic region and there are signs that a significant storm could form near the east coast during the second half of next week.
