Discussion

After a spike in temperatures on Thursday to 67 degrees at Philly Int'l Airport, it has turned much cooler this morning following a cold frontal passage and we'll return to winter-like cold for the weekend. The transition to winter-like cold will continue to generate some rain around here this morning and then, as colder air continues to pour into the region, there is the chance for snow shower activity at just about any time from later today through tomorrow. The atmosphere in the overnight hours and on Saturday will be rather unstable around here thanks to an impressive upper-level wave of energy and it’ll likely be cold enough for any precipitation to fall in the form of snow. The weather quiets down on Sunday, but it’ll remain quite cold for this time of year. In fact, the cold this weekend will not only be quite impressive in the Mid-Atlantic region for late March, but it could turn out to be a widespread low temperature record-breaker come early Sunday morning in many parts of the eastern third of the nation.
