Discussion

The powerful nor’easter is gone and high pressure will take control today generating plenty of sunshine in the Mid-Atlantic region. A clipper low pressure system will drop southeastward on Thursday through the Great Lakes region and should produce a nuisance snow around here on Thursday night into early Friday. Very cold air will follow to close out the work week with low temperatures on Friday night likely plunging to the single digits. Another system will threaten the region with snow or a wintry mix late Sunday into Monday and that system will have lots of moisture to work with. Given the very cold air mass in place ahead of it on Friday night and Saturday, this system could become a real mess around here on Sunday night and Monday. More brutal cold air will follow the Super Bowl system for Monday night and Tuesday of next week.
