Low pressure is tracking a few hundred miles offshore. But, it’s the upper low that has been responsible for a couple of snow showers towards the coast.
A warm front will get nudged northeastward over the next several hours, allowing for a surge of warmer air by tomorrow afternoon.
High pressure will shift off the East Coast tomorrow, turning our flow southeasterly. A warm front will approach from the southwest, bringing a passing shower and struggle to get through tomorrow night.
High pressure off to the northwest will gradually build south intot he start of next week.
It’s starting to feel a little bit more like spring out there today after a snow and chilly day yesterday.
Spring is officially here, but today didn’t look or feel like the arrival of spring one bit as measurable snow fell across the region.
The latest radar loop and surface observations still indicate a bit of rain hanging on in the southernmost parts of the region with the rest of the area remaining dry.
Looks like a general 6-10″ of snow fell from this major winter storm, and it has now changed to freezing rain in the city and plain rain for areas to our south.
Brutal cold has invaded the mid-Atlantic. This morning, we tied our record low temperature of 6 degrees set back in 1943, and today’s high only made it to 18 officially at BWI.
The weather is definitely going to be changing over the coming days.
A frontal boundary became “hung up” over the region this afternoon. As a result, there was an interesting spread in temperatures, with BWI topping out around 55 degrees and D.C. tying a record high of 68 degrees.
Overall, today was very nice. We topped out above average with an official high of 46 degrees at BWI.
