BLOG: Mild, But Still Cold
A rather weak short wave moving through the Northeast has produced plenty of clouds across the region Thursday morning.
As that feature heads farther east there will be more sunshine Thursday afternoon. The rest of the forecast looks good so there really aren’t any changes except to take the high Friday up to 53 as numbers range from 51 to 58.
The clouds that have gathered during the night are expected to break for some sun at times. And as anticipated, temperatures have been holding nearly steady as Arctic air retreats to the north into eastern Canada.
Flurries and a snow shower have been limited to parts of the mid-Atlantic region. There were some flurries at BWI Wednesday evening which started at around 9:30 p.m. and ended before 10:30 p.m. Between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m., parts of Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore either got some flurries, or even a fresh dusting of snow. But the impulse of energy that triggered that activity is now heading out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Therefore, we expect temperatures to start an upward trend Thursday, which will then carry us through the rest of this week. Highs Thursday will be in the 40s. Most places will be no lower than the mid or upper-20s Thursday night, and then temperatures Friday will be mostly in the upper-40s and lower-50s. Again, we’re anticipating no less than partial sunshine. While cloud cover may be the most widespread during the afternoon and at night, a low pressure system sliding across southeastern Canada will distribute all of its light precipitation over areas well to our north.
