March Out Like a Lion

The upcoming Easter weekend is looking stunning with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures ranging from the middle 60s to near 70 degrees.  But first we have to get through a rather rainy Wednesday and January-like temperatures on Thursday and Friday.

The latest high-resolution NAM model (image above, courtesy Pivotal Weather) shows widespread showers with some embedded thunder beginning around 1pm on Wednesday and continuing through the tail end of the evening rush hour.

An arctic front will then approach the DC Area on Wednesday night while a strong area of low pressure develops and rides northward along the front changing rain over to snow in our western zones. Some snow may even mix…

in with the rain on Thursday morning across the immediate Washington Area with no accumulations expected.

How much rain may fall in your backyard during this event?

Following this early Spring bout with old man winter some stellar weather is on tap next week with more sunshine and a warming trend!
