A weak system could throw some light rain our way this morning, but then partial sunshine will return for the afternoon with temperatures climbing to the 50’s. By Friday, as a strong cold front approaches from the west, temperatures could actually reach the low 60’s along with some rain and possibly even a thunderstorm. It’ll gradually turn cooler over the weekend and then a return to much colder weather is likely by the middle of next week.
Finally, some impressive snowfall numbers from this winter: 6th snowiest winter on record in NYC, 5th snowiest ever in Chicago, 3rd snowiest ever in Philly, and the 4th snowiest winter in the last 25 years in DC.
