Discussion

A cool front is passing through the region today and there can be a couple of afternoon and early evening showers associated with it and it’ll turn out a bit cooler than yesterday. Temperatures tomorrow and Friday behind the frontal system will be even cooler with the 50's likely for highs on both days. By Saturday, a deep upper-level trough of low pressure will set up in the northeastern US and the result will be a major shot of cold air into the Mid-Atlantic region along with increasingly strong winds. Low pressure will develop quickly near the coastline on Saturday and this system will produce some precipitation that should be mainly in the form of rain; however, there is the real threat that the rain mixes with or changes to snow in nearby higher elevation locations to the northwest and perhaps even into the big cities along I-95. Warmer weather does return to the region next week following the abnormally cold weekend.
