Roads Still Snow Covered in the DC Region This Morning. Should Improve During the Day. Chance of Snow Wednesday/Thursday. Bitter Cold Returns for Mid to Late Week.

After a nice little vacation I am back and ready to roll with your standard forecasts again. It was a pretty long trip from Pittsburgh to Maryland last night as roads continue to see some decent snow pack early this morning. This should improve during the day. Conditions will dry out by mid to late morning across the region as temperatures are slightly better than they were this past weekend. A chance of snow will return on Wednesday and Thursday in western PA while the DC Region looks at the snow risk mainly on Wednesday. Clouds will stick around on Thursday. Highs in the 10s are expected in western PA today and tomorrow before dropping into the single digits on Thursday. Lows in the upper single digits and 10s tonight will fall into the positive and negative single digits on Wednesday night before falling further into the negative single digits on Thursday night. The DC Region will see highs in the mid to upper 20s today before upper 20s to mid 30s push in on Wednesday. Highs will dive into the mid to upper 10s on Thursday. Lows in the low to mid 10s tonight will drop into the mid to upper 10s tomorrow night before low to mid single digits occur on Thursday. Snow accumulations should be light on Wednesday and Thursday across the region (1-3″ or so in western PA). Hope you have a fantastic two-for-Tuesday! Be safe and stay warm!

Snow Tonight/Thursday in Western PA. Rain/Snow in DC Region Thursday. Frigid Second Half of Week Through the Start of Next Week. Wind Chills in -10s in Western PA Thursday/Thursday Night

Well enjoy the temperatures today while they last because tonight starts the cool down starting with western PA and moving into the DC Region later tomorrow. Snow looks to move into western PA tonight as it continues through Thursday. 1-2″ are expected across much of western PA, with areas near Erie potentially seeing 3″ or so. This system will move out by Friday before another system could bring a chance of snow later on Friday and into the weekend.

I will try to do some Frost Advisories on Thursday and Friday but I will be off of work and sleeping in a bit. It’s hump day. Get over it. Take care folks!

Weekend Outlook: Since I probably won’t be doing Frost Advisories on Thursday and Friday, I thought I’d give my forecast for the weekend. Frigid weather moves in, especially on Sunday and early Monday as lows drop off to below 0 in western PA by Sunday and Monday morning. Lows in the DC Region will drop into the 10s and 20s (possible single digits by Monday morning in suburbs). Highs in the 20s and 30s are expected in the DC Region during the weekend while western PA looks at upper 10s/20s on Saturday and single digits on Sunday. Snow will hold in western PA through much of the weekend as the DC Region could also see a chance of light snow. Another 1-3″ of snow possible in western PA, especially up near Erie.

Freezing Drizzle Today in Western PA. Showers in DC Region. Chance of Wintry Mix Risk During Night. Dry Tuesday and Most of Wednesday.

I hope you all got a chance to enjoy the warmer weather this weekend and air out the mustiness from your homes. Looking at a wet day today across the region, with freezing drizzle potential lingering throughout northwestern PA as warm air aloft allows it to rain but surface temperatures hold below freezing. Conditions will dry out on Tuesday as cloud cover holds steady throughout the day. Partly cloudy skies will stick around for much of Wednesday before clouds increase again and a chance of rain and snow moves in later on Wednesday. Temperatures will decline or hold steady throughout the day in western PA as afternoon highs in the upper 10s and 20s are expected.  Highs in the mid 20s to low 30s will move in on Tuesday before 30s and low 40s push in on Wednesday. Overnight lows in the mid 10s to low 20s will occur tonight before 20s track in on Tuesday night and Wednesday night. The DC Region will see a chance of showers today before snow and sleet could mix in overnight. This could linger into Tuesday morning before clouds decrease during the afternoon. Mostly sunny skies will push in on Wednesday. Highs will reach into the low to mid 40s today, tomorrow, and Wednesday. Lows will drop into the low to mid 30s tonight before mid 20s to low 30s track in on Tuesday night. Upper 20s to low 30s will settle in on Wednesday night. I know it’s Monday, but have hope.

The bed spread is a little heavier this morning as the cold air has settled into the region. A frigid morning with wind chills currently below 0 in parts of western PA while the DC Region is looking at wind chills in the upper single digits and 10s.
