Discussion

The theme of this 6-day forecast period is "from snow to May" as there will be a major warm up next week following last night's snow event and perhaps more nuisance snow from Saturday night into early Sunday. Snow has ended across the DC metro region as low pressure pulls away from the Mid-Atlantic coastline while intensifying rapidly. Snow could last right into the mid-day hours over the Delmarva Peninsula where some places may end up with 4 or 5 inches by ending time (e.g., southern Delaware). By tomorrow night, more nuisance snow is possible as a “clipper” low pressure system drops southeastward from the Northern Plains to the Ohio Valley and then into the Mid-Atlantic. This system could generate an additional coating of snow to parts of the area before it pushes out of here early Sunday morning.

Beyond the weekend, it is off to the races for temperatures across the eastern half of the nation as explosive warming will take place. Temperatures should approach 60 degrees around here on Monday afternoon and then 70 degrees is likely on Tuesday and Wednesday. The dramatic warm up won’t come without its problems, however, for many parts of the nation. The south-central US will likely experience tremendous amounts of rainfall next week - perhaps reaching a foot or more - and there is likely going to be a severe weather outbreak in the Deep South. Furthermore, the state of California will get absolutely pounded next week and beyond for awhile which could result in a foot of rain in much of the northern half of the state and several feet of snow in the Sierra Mountains.
