Temperatures will be mostly in the upper 40s Thursday. Temperatures will wind up in the 20s in most of the typically colder outlying areas and the 30s along the coast and in most of the bigger cities Thursday night.
After a chilly start, Friday should be a little milder, with plenty of sunshine to both start and finish the day. High temperatures will be in the mid 50s in the afternoon. Beyond that, there will be some sunshine early Saturday as a ridge of high pressure remains planted near the mid Atlantic coast during the morning. But, as this begins to slide off shore later in the day and at night, a wave of low pressure located in the Midwest is going to start to drift to the east-northeast. In all likelihood, Saturday will end on a cloudier note, and then as a warm front reaches the central and northern Appalachians on Saturday night, some light and spotty precipitation will start to break out after midnight.
There still is the potential for precipitation to start out as a little wet snow or sleet before dawn on Sunday, and some frozen precipitation may even last for a few hours in several interior locations. Most temperatures on Sunday afternoon will be in the 40s, and there is a good chance for at least some rain — which shouldn’t be very heavy.
