It is cold enough for precipitation to start out as snow, which is expected to begin mid- to late morning.
Clouds from Fridays’ daylong shower event have pushed off to the east. Clouds are now breaking for a good amount of sun for this early Saturday.
Partly cloudy skies cover the region early this morning with temperatures in the mid 20s to low 30s.
Temperatures will be moderating some tomorrow and Monday before a possible minor setback in the trend Tuesday.
Winds and cold temperatures will combine to create RealFeel temperatures in the lower 20s today, and it will feel more like January than late November.
Fog is dense across the area with visibility down to 1/4 mile recently at BWI.
The big story Sunday across the Northeast and parts of the mid-Atlantic will be the gusty winds.
There is high pressure centered in western Virginia and a low pressure area up near Lake Superior.
Based on satellite trends it will be rather cloudy at times Sunday morning before clouds break for sunshine in the afternoon.
We have another day of above normal temperatures Saturday, then the coldest air so far this season will come
in for Sunday and Monday.
A weak cold front will push through the area Sunday which is very moisture starved and will only produce a wind shift out of the west and cloud cover.
A little below the normal high for this day (64 to be exact), but this last Saturday in October is bright and cool.
