After a mild start to the week, the next storm system will impact the Mid-Atlantic on Wednesday with rain possibly changing over to some wet snow. Colder temperatures will return behind this departing system.
After a tranquil weekend ahead the temperatures will only continue to rise into the 60s during the first two days of the upcoming work week. Temperatures may soar close to 70 degrees across Washington’s southern suburbs on Tuesday.
March is a very fickle month, a storm system may impact the Mid-Atlantic states on Wednesday with either rain or snow or a combination of the two. Have a great weekend and enjoy the nice weather.
The forecast model ensembles all show a coastal storm forming on Wednesday and then moving northeast off the southeastern coast of the United States on Thursday. Thankfully all the ensembles keep this system too far offshore to impact the DC Area. So those of you who are sick of winter can breathe a sigh of relief for now.
I hope the models have the correct solution. On January 25th, 2000, a Nor’easter rapidly deepened off the North Carolina coast and then unexpectedly crawled north into the Washington Area dropping 12 to 30″ of snow. The eastern and southern suburbs were slammed the hardest with well over two feet of snow. The day before “flurries” were in the forecast.
Temperatures will begin moderating as we head through the remainder of the work week.
