After a sunny and mild Friday with above freezing to near average highs, colder air is poised to make another visit to the region this weekend.
Clouds will thicken up overnight as a cold front approaches from the west. Some light rain showers will be possible Saturday afternoon, but what little precipitation we are likely to pick up should happen later in the afternoon and evening when temperatures should be cold enough to support snow rather than rain. Flurries will also be possible on a cooler Sunday afternoon.
Early in the week, a few light snow showers/flurries will be possible and may mix with rain. Again, precipitation will be light and temperatures will be near or a few degrees above average Monday and Tuesday. However, by Wednesday, a storm is expected to form just east of the Rockies and return snow into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
The exact track of this low and many other details that cannot yet be forecast with a great deal of accuracy. That said, snow will be likely in the time frame between late Tuesday through Thursday.
