Discussion

Another powerful Arctic front is approaching the I-95 corridor and it is likely to spark some snow shower activity from this evening and there can be a heavier snow squall or two. In fact, it is not out of the question that there be a quick coating to an inch of snow given the strong upper-level energy that is associated with this surface frontal system. Once this front passes through the region, incredible cold Arctic air will flood the region. The period from late tonight into early Saturday will be frigid indeed with amazing low temperatures each morning – possibly even sub-zero and record-breaking come early Friday. Saturday starts off very cold, but it’ll turn milder late along with the chance for some snow. By Saturday night and Sunday, it should become mild enough for a mixed bag of precipitation to change to all plain rain with highs on Sunday surpassing the 40 degree mark before yet another cold air mass arrives for the early part for next week.
