Discussion

Today and Saturday will feature well above normal temperatures in the I-95 corridor, but all of that will change by Sunday with the passage of a strong cold frontal system. This front will blast through the region late Saturday – perhaps accompanied by rain shower activity - and it will usher in the first true blast of Arctic air this season. As the Arctic air flows over the still relatively warm water temperatures of the Great Lakes this weekend, it will generate the first widespread Great Lakes effect snows of the season for those places just downstream; especially, in higher elevation locations. In fact, given the vast difference in temperatures expected this weekend between the warm water and cold Arctic air, thundersnows could develop explosively resulting in substantial snowfall in some places just downstream. Snow showers could even push into areas east of the mountains later this weekend and reach all the way into the immediate I-95 corridor. Winds on Sunday could gust past 40 mph out of the northwest and temperatures should be confined to the 40’s along with the aforementioned chance of snow showers. It stays quite cold on Monday and Tuesday before a slight warm-up arrives at mid-week. Unfortunately, that mid-week slight warm up will likely be accompanied by a storm system traveling northeast from the Midwest and rain showers are possible here in the Wednesday/Thursday time frame.
