The weekend could feature a strong high pressure system over the Northern Plains with intense and widespread cold in the northern and central US extending from Montana-to-Michigan and Minnesota-to-Texas. There is also likely to be quite a bit of moisture gathering across the south-central and Gulf coastal states. There are signs that this moisture will push to the north and east later in the weekend and into the Mid-Atlantic region where there will be a retreating cold air mass. In other words, there is the chance for a wintry mess of snow, ice and/or rain from later Saturday into early Sunday – potentially even significant icing in parts of the Mid-Atlantic. After the departure of this system, some of the very cold air to out north and west could push into the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor with single digit cold possible on Monday morning. Beyond that, yes, there is another winter storm threat that could come out of the Gulf of Mexico and impact the east coast by the middle of next week.
