On Thursday, colder air will begin to pour into the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US following the passage of the cold front and the rain is quite likely to change to accumulating snow across interior sections from West Virginia to northern New England. Temperatures are likely to hold in the 40’s on Thursday in the I-95 corridor and there can even be some snow that makes its way all the way down to the immediate I-95 corridor on Thursday morning. Winds will become quite strong from the northwest by tomorrow afternoon and those strong winds will persist right into the day on Friday. The weather conditions will not be pleasant for the Opening Day of major league baseball on Thursday in such places as Washington, D.C. (Nationals vs. Mets), Philadelphia (Phillies vs. Braves) and New York City (Yankees vs. Blue Jays) where high winds and chilly temperatures will make it quite uncomfortable for the fans…yes, the fans return for the first time since the 2019 season – at least in some limited capacity.
Temperatures by early Friday morning are likely to drop to or just below the freezing mark – even in the immediate I-95 corridor – and this could be a problem for some sensitive plants. In fact, temperatures are likely to drop to or just below the freezing mark again late Friday night/early Saturday before some modification takes place during the upcoming Easter weekend. Don’t be surprised to see plenty of near record or record lows early Friday and again early Saturday all the way from New England down to Florida with this impressive early April cold blast.
