It will “feel like” it’s in the 30s in most places Thursday afternoon, even though the sun will be out.
Temperatures are a bit below the normal high of 36 degrees for this date, but we’re not bone-chilling cold.
We will have a few breaks in the clouds for some limited sunshine throughout the afternoon, but it will remain chilly
and breezy. The overall chilly pattern will continue through the weekend and into next week. The good news is dry weather is expected to prevail as well, outside of a spotty shower Friday afternoon.
Sunshine has returned, thanks to a cold front moving through the Mid-Atlantic. The front has kicked up the winds and mixed up the atmosphere, allowing morning drizzle and fog to give way to some sunshine Wednesday afternoon.

We are locked in that same weather pattern we have been talking about since the storms got out of here Friday night.
In general, cool and unsettled weather will prevail for the upcoming week as a large low pressure gyre aloft (around 10,000-20,000 feet) over Ontario early Sunday morning settles south across the Northeast and stalls.
We have had a very mild and comfortable winter so far, but it’s also been a dry one.
The active winds have subsided across the area. Peak gusts on Saturday include: 48 BWI, 44 DCA, 38 SBY.
Back at the start of this week, we identified Friday as one of those “cooler, but not necessarily COLDER” days behind this front. And, even though we should see a fair amount of sunshine, wind gusts could be as high as 30 miles per hour, which should start to relax Friday evening.
As a cool front continues to push eastward into central Pennsylvania and in upstate New York, a line of showers (albeit weakening as of this writing) is following it.
Temperatures should fall through the 60s and into the 50s in most places Friday night as the much cooler air arrives, and then there will be very little recovery occurring Saturday.
