TONIGHT: Mostly Clear, Cold. Lo 18. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
WEDNESDAY: Partly Cloudy, Milder. Hi 42. Winds: S 5-15 mph. Gusts to 20 mph.
THURSDAY: AM Flurries, Milder PM. Hi 44. Winds: Light.
Tonight will be mostly clear and cold again with temperatures dropping into the mid to upper teens. Despite mostly clear skies, winds will turn southerly tonight, which will keep temperatures from free falling into the single digits. Milder air will move in for Wednesday afternoon with temperatures pushing into low 40s under partly sunny skies.
The next trough swings through Thursday, bringing a few morning flurries. It will likely be our warmest day of the next 7 with highs in the mid to upper 40s. Much cooler air then settles back in for the weekend with highs back down into the 30s Friday.
Cold air will be established Saturday with overnight lows into Sunday dipping into the teens. Some big shifts are taking place for the weekend, with a storm that previously looked to stay well south of us having an opportunity to come north. Confidence is growing in an impactful winter storm somewhere in the mid-Atlantic or northeast Sunday night-Monday morning depending on the exact track. It’s still way too early for specifics locally, but it’s possible we see a period of heavy snow or a wintry mix (or both). Keep checking back for details. Conditions will dry out next week but stay chilly with highs in the 30s.
