Discussion

A powerful cold front will barrel towards the eastern seaboard from later today into early Friday and it’ll bring some wild weather to the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US. Ahead of the front later, heavy rains, possible thunderstorms and potentially damaging winds will develop raising the prospects for localized flooding and power outages. It’ll become much milder as well today with temperatures soaring to the 60 degree mark by late in the day in the DC metro region. On the back side of the front, temperatures will plunge on Friday from their early morning highs to the 20’s by later in the afternoon. Any standing water on untreated surfaces that is left behind by the heavy rain event could freeze-up in a hurry early Friday as temperatures take a plunge. The cold air mass will stick around into the weekend with temperatures on Saturday struggling to reach the freezing mark.
