WEATHER BLOG: Cold Thursday
The day is getting off to a cold start. Flurries remain north and east of Baltimore.
Thursday will turn out brisk and cold despite some sunshine. High pressure will supply us with some cold air Thursday night, when most temperatures will wind up in the teens, especially if the sky is clear for several hours.
Clouds will begin to arrive Friday, and the next area of low pressure later Friday/night will be getting organized in the Lower Mississippi Valley.
It does look like the precipitation we’re expecting on Saturday will start out as a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain — but as a shallow layer of cold air erodes and a new wave of low pressure begins to form along the mid-Atlantic coast later on Saturday, the precipitation should make a transition to plain rain (as the temperature rises into the mid and upper 30s).
We should address the possibility of some snow and ice accumulation, although it looks now like it will be under an inch before that changeover. Sunday is looking dry, albeit windy, and then it will be colder again on Monday. Have a good day!
