Discussion

A warm front passed through the region late yesterday and temperatures today will spike in the I-95 corridor; but this warm up will be rather short-lived. A strong cold front arrives this evening with showers and scattered strong thunderstorms and it will put an end to the quick burst of milder weather. Temperatures will begin a downward trend on Friday and that trend will continue into the weekend which will end up being well below normal for late March. In fact, this winter-like cold is likely to be accompanied by snow shower activity anytime from later tomorrow into Saturday as there will be lots of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere generating unstable conditions at the same time the colder air pours into the Mid-Atlantic region.
