While still below normal for this time of year, temperatures did modify markedly yesterday and the cold was not nearly as harsh as it was on Tuesday. Today, however, temperatures will take a step backwards on our road to full recovery as a fresh injection of Arctic air moved in overnight and it’ll turn out several degrees colder compared with yesterday. These colder-than-normal conditions will continue on Friday, but then it’ll get noticeably milder on Saturday with temperatures climbing well up into the 40’s.
As far as precipitation is concerned, the northwest fringes of a storm off the Southeast U.S. coast will come quite close to the I-95 corridor on Friday and some rain or snow shower activity cannot yet be completely ruled out. The weekend looks dry once that storm pulls away, but the milder conditions on Saturday will give way to slightly colder weather on Sunday. Looking ahead to next week, after a mild early part of the week on Monday and Tuesday, it looks like colder air may make a return around mid-week.
