Discussion

Temperatures will moderate today – perhaps even flirting with the 50 degree mark in the metro region – but another Arctic invasion is ready to pounce on the northeastern US. A strong Arctic front will arrive early tomorrow and it should produce snow showers in the area late tonight and early Thursday. More bone-chilling cold will follow with strong winds later tomorrow into Friday before moderation takes place to begin the weekend. That moderation on Saturday will be short-lived; however, as another cold shot will arrive later in the weekend leading to a period of inclement weather. A mixed bag of precipitation is possible around here on Sunday and then, as it turns gradually colder on Monday, snow very well could become the main precipitation type early next week as low pressure tries to form near the Mid-Atlantic coastline.
