While we don’t have to be concerned about any big storm, we do feel pretty strongly that many folks will experience their first snow flakes of the season late tonight or early tomorrow as a very potent cold front blasts through the mid-Atlantic.
As one system departs, another more potent gears up to dig in! This next system will swiftly move eastward across the country ushering in some of the coldest air of the season so far!
The big story Sunday across the Northeast and parts of the mid-Atlantic will be the gusty winds.
Well, I have officially thrown in the towel on the big storm idea for the middle of next week. The European model has trended over the past few runs to push any low that forms out to sea before it has a chance to make it far enough north to have any impact on our weather.
There is high pressure centered in western Virginia and a low pressure area up near Lake Superior.
Winds are expected to increase through the afternoon.
Showers associated with the cold front will be crossing the area during the midday and early afternoon.
There is sunshine with most temperatures in the lower or middle 60s.
More clouds than sun will be the name of the game for the rest of Tuesday and Wednesday as temps continue to trend mild. We will top out Tuesday with highs in the mid/upper 50s and then low 60s for Wednesday.
Clouds have been on the increase throughout the afternoon Monday with skies sitting mostly cloudy to overcast across the region.
We maxed out Sunday around 56 degrees at the airport… that’s much cooler than our high on Saturday of 68 degrees. Cooler air has moved in and it is only going to continue to get chillier!
Based on satellite trends it will be rather cloudy at times Sunday morning before clouds break for sunshine in the afternoon.
