- A mix of rain and snow will develop across the Washington Region on Friday morning. The mix will gradually change over to light snow showers during the afternoon hours mainly across our northern and western suburbs.
The next image (courtesy TropicalTidbits) shows temperatures falling rapidly between 2 pm Friday and 1 am Saturday:
- Temperatures will plummet into the 20s Friday evening with wind chills dropping into the teens and single digits.
- Widespread low temperatures in the upper teens to lower 20s are expected across the region on Saturday morning (image below courtesy WxBell shows forecast temperatures 7am Saturday)
High temperatures on Saturday will struggle to reach the middle to upper 30s as strong Cold Air Advection (CAA) likely overtakes the effects of the higher March sun-angle (image below courtesy WxBell shows forecast temperatures 4 pm Saturday):
- The models remain consistent in keeping any snow well south of the Washington Area over the weekend.
- Watching Tuesday closely for a potential Nor’easter that could have significant impacts on the Mid-Atlantic & New England.
