WEATHER BLOG: Rain-Snow Mix
High pressure early Monday morning is allowing the week to get off to a dry and chilly start. It won’t be quite as chilly as Sunday was, but we’ve got a wave of low pressure that will be forming in the Tennessee Valley later on that will be giving us some minor headaches Tuesday.
By and large, most of the WJZ-TV viewing area will be getting a cold rain starting late Monday and lasting through midday Tuesday. But we can also anticipate that some wet snowflakes will be involved in the mix in some northern suburbs — and in places like Frederick County and all points west along the I-70 corridor, more in the way of snow will lead to some accumulation. These places will probably get an average of 1-3 inches, but nothing more because this wave of low pressure will be rather weak and it will be moving at a rapid pace.
Temperatures Tuesday will be no higher than the lower 40s, making it chillier than Monday.
There will be some drier weather for the rest of this week, and temperatures will be slow to climb out of the 40s — it probably won’t get back to or above 50 again until this weekend.
Have a good day!!!
