A combination of a frontal boundary and a weak disturbance moving along it will trigger some precipitation Sunday evening and into the overnight hours. Precipitation begins as rain for almost everyone before mixing in with snow overnight. Areas north and west of the city may see a complete changeover to snow allowing for a coating to 1″ of snowfall accumulation. Temps will fall overnight, so we will have to watch for slick spots as we fall below the freezing mark. Colder air will advance in Sunday and the jet stream will continue to pump chilly air into the region throughout the week. Temps will drop below normal for the next several days.
Dry weather will prevail on Monday as high pressure noses in from the west allowing for partly sunny skies. The next precipitation event we will have to watch out for will be Tuesday into Wednesday morning. We will have a weak disturbance tracking in from the west and also a potentially developing coastal storm that will take shape somewhere near the southeast coast of the U.S. It’s too soon to tell exactly how that will impact us as models have been in disagreement lately. Even if the storm does not reach maximum potential, there would still be the threat for some light to moderate snowfall from eastern Virginia into New England.
