Winter Storm Rumors, But This Time They Could Very Well Happen

Posted on

So a potential coastal storm could occur in the Mid-Atlantic during the middle of the week. Note the word potential as some uncertainty remains in the models. If (and I say if) the most extreme situation happens, moderate to severe impacts could be along the I-95 corridor (DC, Philly, Boston). Western PA should stay out of the woods for the most part with this storm, but potential is there for impacts across southern western PA. I’ll keep you updated. I should have a “first guess” forecast map out by either tonight or tomorrow.

Current (~7am) temperatures/wind chills in the region this morning:

  • Erie: 16 ; Wind Chill: 6
  • Franklin: 12 ; Wind Chill: -1
  • New Castle: 9; Wind Chill: 9
  • Butler:12 ; Wind Chill: 12
  • Pittsburgh (KAGC): 14 ; Wind Chill: 4
  • Uniontown: 15 ; Wind Chill: 5
  • State College: 14; Wind Chill: 5
  • Frederick, MD: 23 ; Wind Chill: 16
  • BWI Airport: 23 ; Wind Chill: 11
  • DC (KDCA): 28 ; Wind Chill: 16


Western PA:

  • Today: A chance of snow near Lake Erie. Otherwise, partly sunny skies. Highs: Mid to upper teens; Overnight Lows: Low single digits. Wind chills below zero possible
  • Tuesday: Partly cloudy skies. Highs: Mid to upper teens; Overnight Lows: Near 0. Wind chills below zero possible.
  • Wednesday: Mostly sunny skies. Highs: Mid to upper 20s. Overnight Lows: Teens

DC Region:

  • Today: Partly sunny skies. Highs: Low to mid 30s; Overnight Lows:: Mid teens to low 20s.
  • Tuesday: Mostly sunny skies. Highs: Low 30s; Overnight Lows:: Mid to upper teens.
  • Wednesday: Clouds increase during the day, winter weather moves in late. Highs: Upper 20s to low 30s; Overnight Lows: Upper 20s to low 30s.

Good News: Western PA takes a little break from the snow for the most part.

Bad News: Potential winter storm could allow for moderate to severe impacts in the DC region up to the Boston region. Rain and ice are possible along with this system as well. I’ll keep you updated!

Have a great Monday Monday!
