7:00 AM | ***Very windy today with gusts to 50 mph possible...some accumulating snow this weekend***

Paul Dorian

The pressure gradient will remain rather tight today between strong low pressure over the Canadian Maritimes and strong high pressure over southern Canada and this will result in continued strong winds around here in the Mid-Atlantic region with gusts to 50 mph possible. Winds will slacken off tonight and Friday, but the chill will continue with overnight lows way down in the 20’s and highs struggling to reach freezing on Friday afternoon. By the early part of the weekend, low pressure will pull out of the south-central US and heads towards the northeast at the same time strong high pressure will build into southeastern Canada with a reinforcing very cold air mass. While still a couple days away, some accumulating snow is a good bet in the Philly metro region from later Saturday into Sunday.

Winds will slacken off tonight and Friday, but the chill will continue with overnight lows way down in the 20’s and highs struggling to reach the mid 30's Friday afternoon. By the early part of the weekend, low pressure will pull out of the south-central US and heads towards the northeast at the same time strong high pressure will build into southeastern Canada with a reinforcing very cold air mass. While still a couple days away, accumulating snow is a good bet in the DC metro region from Saturday afternoon through Sunday with several inches on the table in parts of Virginia and Maryland...stay tuned.

2:45 PM | **Weekend snow threat continues for much of the Mid-Atlantic region**

Paul Dorian

Snow continues to be a threat for the weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region with early indications suggesting that the heaviest snowfall amounts may end up being south of the PA/MD border.  Low pressure will pull out of the south-central US early in the weekend and slowly head towards the eastern seaboard – perhaps near the Outer Banks region of North Carolina.  The chances for accumulating snow this weekend will largely depend on upper-level energy that is just now closing in on the west coast of the US.

7:00 AM | ***Strong winds today with snow showers...weekend accumulating snow threat***

Paul Dorian

The pressure gradient will tighten today between intensifying low pressure over New England and strong high pressure over southern Canada and this will result in strong winds around here with gusts past 40 mph and there can be accompanying PM snow shower activity. Winds may slacken off a bit tonight as diurnal heating dissipates only to resume at rather high levels again during the day on Thursday. Temperatures will actually drop some between today and Thursday following the passage of a secondary cold front and highs will struggle to reach the mid 30's on Friday although winds will be somewhat reduced to end the work week. By the weekend, low pressure will be gathering strength over the Gulf of Mexico at the same time strong high pressure will slide east across south-central Canada. The upper atmosphere will feature two waves of energy by early Saturday – one in the northern jet stream over the western Great Lakes and the other down in the south-central US. There a few days to go and these upper-level features are still a long way away, but it looks like accumulating snow is a good bet in the DC metro region from Saturday afternoon into Sunday...stay tuned.

7:00 AM | *Much cooler for the remainder of the week*

Paul Dorian

Yesterday featured high temperatures in the mild middle 60’s, but a strong cold front has swept through the region and ushered in much colder air for the remainder of the week. High temperatures during the second half of the week will generally be confined to the 40’s and overnight lows will be in the 20’s. By the early part of the weekend, low pressure will begin to organize over the Gulf and make a move to the northeast bringing us a renewed threat of showers.

7:00 AM | *Much cooler weather for the remainder of the week*

Paul Dorian

Yesterday featured high temperatures near the 80 degree mark, but a strong cold front has swept through the region and ushered in cooler air for the remainder of the week. High temperatures today will be much closer to the 70 degree mark and then drop another notch to the low-to-mid 60’s on Thursday. A rebound in temperatures will take place this weekend and with the warming trend will come an increasing chance for showers.

12:15 PM | **Strong cold front arrives late this evening…powerful winds on Wednesday and Thursday…weekend snow threat continues**

Paul Dorian

The last couple of weeks were well above-normal in the eastern half of the nation, but this week will be a lot different with progressively colder conditions.  In addition, winds will become quite a factor as they will become very strong on Wednesday and Thursday with gusts to 50 mph possible in the DC-to-Philly-NYC corridor.  As far as precipitation is concerned, a strong and active cold front will arrive later this evening with occasional rain showers and there can be a rumble of thunder.  Looking ahead, snow continues to be a threat for the weekend in the Mid-Atlantic region.  The chances for significant snow this weekend in the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor will ride on the timing of the phasing together of waves of energy in the northern and southern jet streams.  Early indications suggest the phasing together of these two systems may not occur until they’re both offshore which would reduce chances for important snow accumulations in the I-95 corridor; however, it is way too early to write off a significant snowfall for the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor.

7:00 AM | **Strong cold frontal passage tonight...powerful winds on Wednesday/Thursday...weekend snow threat**

Paul Dorian

It’ll turn milder today after a cold, damp start to the day and afternoon temperatures should make it to the upper 40's for highs. A strong cold front will sweep through the region later this evening and likely bring us a round of rain showers before midnight. As low pressure intensifies over New England on Wednesday and strong high pressure edges this way from the Upper Midwest, the pressure gradient will tighten and winds will pick up dramatically. In fact, winds could gust to 45 mph on Wednesday and they’ll stay strong through Thursday to go along with progressively colder temperatures. Looking ahead to the weekend, snow is a threat around here as low pressure pulls out of the Gulf of Mexico at the same time strong, cold high pressure slides eastward across southern Canada. It is still too early to tell how quickly this Gulf storm can intensify by the time it reaches the Mid-Atlantic coastline as that'll depend on potential phasing of a northern stream wave of energy with a southern stream disturbance…stay tuned.
