7:00 AM | Dry, cool weather through tomorrow evening; windy and chilly for the weekend as strong storm forms off the coast

Friday

Partly sunny, cool, mid-to-upper 50’s

Friday Night

Becoming cloudy, chilly, rain showers possible late, low 40's

Saturday

Cloudy, becoming windy and unseasonably chilly, rain showers possible at times, near 50

Sunday

Mostly sunny, windy, unseasonably cold, mid-to-upper 40’s

Monday

Mostly sunny, still chilly, but a bit milder than Sunday, low-to-mid 50’s

Tuesday

Partly sunny, cool, upper 50’s

Discussion

A cool front passed through the region yesterday and ushered in noticeably cooler air for today and tomorrow and an even colder air mass will arrive over the weekend. Following two dry and cool days to close out the work week, deep upper-level trof will set up early this weekend in the Northeast US and the result will be the development of a strong storm off the Mid-Atlantic coastline. Winds will increase later Saturday, temperatures will hold at below normal levels, and there will be some rain shower activity, but the steadiest, heaviest precipitation is likely to stay to our south and east as the storm intensifies off the coast. Cold pours into the I-95 corridor Saturday night once the off-shore low pressure system pulls to the northeast and temperatures on Sunday will hold in the 40's along with a stiff wind. A gradual warm up will take place in the Northeast US during the first half of next week.

7:00 AM | *Major cold shot for the weekend with rain and even snow a threat for the Mid-Atlantic region*

6-Day Forecast

Thursday Night

Partly cloudy, chilly, upper 30’s

Friday

Partly sunny, cool, mid-to-upper 50’s

Saturday

Considerable clouds, windy and unseasonably cold, rain showers possible that could even mix with snowflakes at times, low-to-mid 40’s

Sunday

Mostly sunny, breezy, still unseasonably cold, mid-to-upper 40’s

Monday

Mostly sunny, not as chilly, low-to-mid 50’s

Discussion

A cool front is passing through the region today and there can be a couple of afternoon and early evening showers associated with it and it’ll turn out a bit cooler than yesterday. Temperatures tomorrow and Friday behind the frontal system will be even cooler with the 50's likely for highs on both days. By Saturday, a deep upper-level trough of low pressure will set up in the northeastern US and the result will be a major shot of cold air into the Mid-Atlantic region along with increasingly strong winds. Low pressure will develop quickly near the coastline on Saturday and this system will produce some precipitation that should be mainly in the form of rain; however, there is the real threat that the rain mixes with or changes to snow in nearby higher elevation locations to the northwest and perhaps even into the big cities along I-95. Warmer weather does return to the region next week following the abnormally cold weekend.

7:00 AM | A surge in temperatures today, but a major cold shot arrives for the weekend and snow is not out of the question in nearby higher elevation locations and perhaps even into the big cities; Antares rocket launch postponed until early tonight

6-Day Forecast

Today

Mostly sunny, warmer, highs in the mid-to-upper 70’s

Tonight

Increasing clouds, mild, chance for a shower or two late, lows in the mid-to-upper 50’s

Wednesday

Mostly cloudy, not as warm, maybe a couple of showers, mid 60’s

Wednesday Night

Partly cloudy, cool, low 40’s

Thursday

Mostly sunny, cool, mid-to-upper 50’s

Friday

Partly sunny, cool, mid 50’s

Saturday

Considerable clouds, windy, unseasonably cold, rain and/or snow showers possible, low-to-mid 40’s

Sunday

Mostly sunny, breezy, still unseasonably cold, mid-to-upper 40’s

Discussion

There will be a surge in temperatures today ahead of an approaching cold front with highs well up in the 70’s up and down the I-95 corridor from DC-to-NYC. This warm up will be short-lived; however, as a cold frontal passage will begin a downward trend in temperatures for the second half of the week. A major cold shot will arrive on Saturday as deep upper-level troughing develops in the eastern US and this will lead to the formation of a storm near the Mid-Atlantic coastline. As a result, winds will howl on Saturday, high temperatures will be confined to way below normal levels in the 40's, and some precipitation is likely which can be in the form of snow in higher elevation locations just to the northwest of Route I-95 and perhaps even into the big cities from DC-to-NYC.

One other note, last night's Antares rocket launch at NASA/Wallops Island, VA was scrubbed due to a boat in the launch site area. The rescheduled time for the launch is 6:22PM early tonight. While clouds were not an issue last night in terms of viewing conditions around here, they will be a bit more of a concern early tonight.

Discussion

High pressure will push into the area today and generate seasonably cool weather as we begin the new work week. Temperatures will surge on Tuesday ahead of another cold front, but we'll cool down again behind the frontal system for the second half of the week. A strong push of downright cold air for this time of year will arrive by the weekend and high temperatures on Saturday – the first day of November – will likely hold in the 40's around here which is way below normal and snow showers are likely in higher elevation locations just to our northwest.
