12:45 PM | Snow with small accumulations late tomorrow into tomorrow night; Arctic blast this weekend
A fast-moving system will spread snow our way later tomorrow afternoon and evening and small accumulations are likely on the order of a coating to an inch. A little rain can mix in for brief time primarily to the south and east of the city. There may even be some slick spots on the roads during the evening rush hour as temperatures drop to near freezing. The general timetable for this upcoming event is from the mid afternoon hours into the evening (~3-10PM). Elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic, the Philly and DC metro regions will get slightly more than around here (coating S and E to up to 2 inches N and W) as the system loses a little punch by the time it reaches the coast. Longer term, a strong Arctic cold front will whip through the Mid-Atlantic region Friday night and it will usher in perhaps the coldest air mass of the season so far (threat for single digits late weekend). Snow showers and strong winds may accompany the frontal passage late Friday night and early Saturday and those strong winds will continue for much of the weekend.
