The mild weather of the past few days will evaporate today as strong NW winds bring an influx of colder air following the passage of a strong cold frontal system. Winds can gust to 40 mph or so this morning as the colder air mass pours into the region. By later tomorrow, clouds will increase as moisture streams eastward across the Ohio Valley and snow is likely to break out tomorrow night and continue into Friday. Accumulations are likely in time for the Friday morning commute in the I-95 corridor and a small shift to the N and W of the expected intensifying coastal low could increase accumulations dramatically. It stays relatively cold through the upcoming weekend and there can be some more snow or snow shower activity by Saturday night from a fast-moving “clipper” low pressure system.
Looking ahead, a major warm up is coming next week into the eastern half of the nation which could bring temperatures to the 70 degree mark in the I-95 corridor region from DC-to-Philly-to-NYC.
