Discussion

The month of March has been unusually dry in the Mid-Atlantic region, but a soaking rain event will begin today as strong low pressure pushes into the Ohio Valley. This same storm system contributed to the first significant severe weather outbreak of the season on Wednesday and severe weather will be a threat today in the Carolinas and Virginia. The strong low pressure system will shift in its heretofore northeastward track and take a turn to the south and east later in the day as it runs into an impressive upper-level blocking pattern across southern Canada. At the same time, strong high pressure will build into southeastern Canada today and it will be anchoring quite a cold air mass for this time of year. As the storm pushes to the south and east tonight, the cold air mass will follow suit and rain will change to snow in a northwest-to-southeast fashion. By early tomorrow, low pressure will be situated off the Mid-Atlantic coastline and a mixing with or a complete changeover to snow is may take place all the way down into the DC-to-Philly-to-NYC corridor. After this storm system pushes away later tomorrow, cold and dry air will dominate the scene right through the first half of the upcoming weekend. A warm up will begin on Sunday afternoon and temperatures should be back up in the 60’s for highs by early next week in the DC, Philly, and NYC metro regions.
