Boy what a warm day we’ve been enjoying so far! As of 4:30pm this afternoon, BWI Airport was checking in around 79°.
Easter Sunday has turned out to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and highs, as expected, in the mid 60s.
Today overall has been a gorgeous day, although a bit cooler than yesterday.
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.
