Discussion

An upper-level disturbance will cross over the Northeast US today and it could generate a few showers in the local region. Weak high pressure will then build into the region on Tuesday and, following that, attention will turn towards an area of moisture in the Southeast US at mid-week. This moisture is likely to consolidate with developing low pressure near the east coast during the second half of the week. As a result, rain is possible in the I-95 corridor later Thursday from this potential coastal storm and the threat for showers may last into Friday. Both Thursday and Friday will be quite cool for this time of year given the expected abundant cloud cover.

Discussion

Today will be another breezy, chilly day in the Mid-Atlantic region with temperatures well below normal for this time of year. Temperatures are likely to drop into the middle 30’s in many suburban locations in the overnight hours and patchy frost is quite possible by early tomorrow morning. An area of showers just to our southwest this weekend should stay far enough away to keep us rain-free as we progress through Saturday and Sunday.

Discussion

A strong cold frontal passage on Wednesday ushered in a pattern change that will bring the Mid-Atlantic region colder-than-normal weather conditions not only for the rest of the week, but also likely for the rest of the month. Overnight lows in the 30’s in suburban locations will be the norm for the next few nights and frost is not out of the question early Friday morning and again early Saturday morning. As far as rainfall is concerned, there will be an area of showers across northern Maryland and Virginia on Saturday, but it is likely to stay far enough away for us to stay dry. Looking ahead, many computer forecast models are forecasting a significant east coast storm next week in the Wednesday-to-Friday time period.

1:15 PM | ***Gusts to 60 mph possible with “pattern-changing” cold front***

Discussion

A "pattern-changing" strong cold frontal system is generating showers and embedded strong-to-severe thunderstorms from central Pennsylvania southward to Northern Virginia at mid-day and this band will move rapidly to the east into the I-95 corridor over the next few hours. Wind gusts of up to 60 mph are possible as this line of showers and storms races to the east and there can be brief downpours and small hail in scattered locations. Much colder air will quickly follow with this “pattern-changing” cold frontal passage - already down to 43 degrees in State College - and there is even snow falling across higher elevation locations of western Maryland. Colder-than-normal conditions are likely to not only last for the remainder of the week in the Mid-Atlantic region, but right through the rest of the month of April with 30’s common for overnight lows in many suburban locations to the north and west of the I-95 big cities.
