A strong cold front passed through the region yesterday and it has ushered in a major change to the overall weather pattern back to colder-than-normal conditions for the Mid-Atlantic region. This change will not be a short-lived and general colder-than-normal weather is likely through the remainder of March and into the first part of April. Temperatures today will struggle to climb through the 40's after soaring through the 60's on Tuesday.
In addition to the renewed cold, there may be multiple snow threats for the I-95 corridor over the next few weeks including one this Friday as low pressure organizes near the Mid-Atlantic coastline with fresh cold air in place. Snow is likely to break out before daybreak on Friday and it should then mix with and change to plain rain later in the day. Initial snowfall estimates are for a coating to an inch or two in the metro region before the changeover to rain with the higher amounts on grassy surfaces in higher elevation locations to the north and west. After a milder day on Saturday, another shot of cold air is destined to arrive here by early next week.
