10:50 AM | *Powerful Great Lakes storm this weekend with blizzard conditions to bring rain to the Mid-Atlantic region and a spring tease*

Paul Dorian

A rapidly intensifying low pressure system will head towards the Great Lakes region this weekend from the southern Plains and it could very well become a news making event with wide ranging ramifications over a large area.  This system has the potential to deepen to around 978 millibars (28.88 inches) or so by the time it reaches the Great Lakes early Sunday which may be close to monthly record low pressure values for portions of Michigan.  Blizzard conditions are likely to accompany this powerful storm system this weekend over the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes.  Farther east, rain will spread northeastward from the Mississippi and Tennessee Valleys and into the Mid-Atlantic region later Saturday and continue into early Sunday. Once the rain ends on Sunday, temperatures have a chance to spike to 60 degrees or higher in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC providing us with a spring tease, but the warm up won’t last too long as colder air returns for the early part of next week.

7:00 AM | Much quieter today and becoming noticeably milder

Paul Dorian

It’ll turn noticeably milder today following yesterday’s wintry event and high pressure will build into the region and control the weather around here through Friday. Very strong low pressure will move across the Great Lakes this weekend and bring us rain from later Saturday into early Sunday. Once the rain pulls away on Sunday, temperatures could soar to 60 degrees on Sunday afternoon, but the warm up will be brief as colder air returns for the early part of next week.

7:00 AM | Threat for showers continues next few days

Paul Dorian

Upper-level wave will move into the Tennessee Valley and combine with a moist southwesterly flow of air giving us a good chance at more rain. Rainfall amounts are, however, expected to be on the low side as upward motion will not be significant. Rain chances will continue on Friday as the next frontal system approaches the region.

7:00 AM | Near 80 degrees for highs next few days

Paul Dorian

A persistent area of high pressure over the Bahamas will continue to result in warm weather across Florida with highs near 80 degrees through the weekend. A weak front has stalled in the area and has enhanced chances for scattered showers and this threat will continue through the weekend. The high pressure ridging in the upper part of the atmosphere will weaken some this weekend and will allow for a frontal passage and it’ll turn a bit cooler early next week.

10:30 AM (Wednesday) | ****Winter storm is now underway and will have impacts into early tonight…very heavy snow bands setting up in some areas****

Paul Dorian

Snow began early this morning across the DC metro region and arrived during the mid-morning hours in Philly.  Snow should break out during the mid-day/early afternoon hours in the NYC metro region.  The snow will vary in intensity across the DC metro region for the next couple of hours and then transition to sleet and/or freezing rain during the mid-day or early afternoon.  In Philly, the snow will become moderate-to-heavy at times for the mid-day and early afternoon hours and could begin the transition to sleet and/or freezing rain late this afternoon.  All indications are that surface temperatures will stay at or slightly below freezing into the early evening hours in areas to the north and west of Route 95 from DC-to-Philly-to-NYC.  This will keep the threat for icing intact right into the early evening in suburban locations along the I-95 corridor.

7:00 AM | ***Major storm system to impact the region with accumulating snow, ice and rain***

Paul Dorian

A major winter storm will impact the Mid-Atlantic region today and tonight with accumulating snow on its front end before a changeover to ice and rain. An initial (primary) low pressure system will head towards the western Great Lakes today and a secondary low pressure will form near the Mid-Atlantic coastline. Another key player is strong, cold high pressure currently situated over New England and it will anchor cold, dense low-level air that will be reluctant to give up its ground. Snow is likely to break out by mid-day to early afternoon in the NYC metro region and can become moderate-to-heavy at times with accumulations expected on the order of 2-4 inches by late in the day (higher amounts in that range to the west, lower amounts to the east). By early tonight, milder air will advance into the region as winds turn more to the southeast and this should result in a changeover from snow to sleet and freezing rain and then ultimately to plain rain by late tonight. The low pressure system moves away on Thursday and allows for high pressure to build in from the west and temperatures could actually climb to 50+ degrees during the afternoon hours.

7:00 AM | Warm next several days with nothing more than scattered showers

Paul Dorian

A persistent area of high pressure over the Southeast US will continue to result in warm weather across Florida with highs for the remainder of the week falling in the 75-80 degrees range. A weak front has stalled in the area and has enhanced chances for showers and this threat will continue through the week. The high pressure ridging in the upper part of the atmosphere will weaken some this weekend and that may result in scattered showers.
