Overall Decent Weekend

The weekend finishes on a pleasant note with ample sunshine and seasonal temperatures. The respite continues Monday for the most part, but changes happen quickly thereafter. Clouds and milder air return tomorrow as Gulf moisture begins to move north ahead an advancing cold front. Rain develops Monday night and continues through midday Tuesday. Thereafter, the remainder of the work week is seasonably cold and quiet.

Forecast Discussion

The majority of the upcoming work week is tame. However, we'll contend with a busy 24-hour episode beginning Monday night and ending Tuesday night.

Low pressure is developing in Texas today and moves northeast to the Mid-Atlantic region Tuesday night. After a relatively pleasant Sunday clouds return overnight as moisture begins spilling north from the Gulf. Monday is seasonably mild despite ample cloud cover and I cannot rule out some light rain late tomorrow afternoon. However, steady rain doesn't arrive until Monday night and continues through midday Tuesday until an attending cold front moves through. Temperatures crash Tuesday afternoon leading into a cold and blustery Wednesday.

After a couple of seasonably cold mornings Thursday and Friday have moderating afternoon temperatures.

Saturday, an area of low pressure tries to spin up from the Gulf. There are lots of questions. But indeed if it makes far enough north in tandem with leftover cold air we could have a spell of snow or a snow/rain mix Saturday morning. Those details will get refined in the next couple of days.
