Discussion

This stretch with the worst weather that winter has to offer will continue over the next several days with more snow and incredible cold including possible sub-zero low temperatures. Now that the latest snowfall has ended in the I-95 corridor, attention turns to the next important weather event. Indeed, another powerful Arctic front will arrive late tomorrow and it is likely to generate late afternoon and early evening snow showers along with a possible heavier snow squall. In fact, this frontal passage could produce a quick coating to an inch of new snow later tomorrow and early tomorrow night and there can be slick spots on the roads as a result. Incredible cold pours in behind the front for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Low temperatures will bottom out at extremely cold levels during that stretch with single digits likely on Thursday and Saturday morning's and sub-zero temperatures - possible record-breaking - likely on Friday morning. More snow is possible by late Saturday, but as the weekend progresses, the temperatures will climb to levels which will allow for the possibility of precipitation other than in the form of snow.
