Windy day signifies colder air|Freeze & Frost | Cooler but still above normal

Temps will likely peak this AM across the North and then fall under gusty winds. Temps will struggle to the he low and mid 60s north, but manage the 70 to 75 degree mark south.

A cold night will bring Frost and Freeze concerns to the mountains and valleys and even lower elevations of Northern VA, MD, PA, NJ. Temps in PA and some valley and mountains could hit the 20s and low 30s elsewhere in these regions. 30s elsewhere with low 40s south. Tomorrow will be the first seasonable day in weeks with highs in the 50s for the most part - closer to 50 north and upper 50s south.

We bounce back strongly Wednesday with highs soaring again to the 70s, to close to 80 south.  A fairly strong front will cross the region Wednesday with the threat of severe possible based on some dynamics that will have to be watched. This will front will bring slightly cooler air again but temps will remain 5 to 10 degrees above normal.

Dry conditions after Wednesday may last through next Monday. Then we have something odd to watch Early next week - there could be a New England inland snow and a cold few days to content with.

All for now.

Get that Crabgrass preventer down. Do it yourself or get my friend at Lawn Design to do it.

Did not ever Share, how this #winter compared to others in DC Area!


1931-32 AND 44.3F IN 1889-90.



#fog to start|Hazy sunshine possible later| Storms possible South and West|Storms tomorrow

Anyone that is getting the easterly winds from the backdoor front is seeing a foggy start this AM. Temps have cooled to the low and mid 50s for most, but 40s showing up for areas near the ocean or bay. Highs today could be a bit cooler for folks due to the haze and fog today, but still at least 10 to 15 degrees above normal. There could be some showers over SW Virginia and western NC. 

Scattered showers and storms will visit the whole region tomorrow with highs pretty close to today's but maybe a few degrees warmer due to southerly winds. Tuesday looks to continue a chance for showers and storms to the south (southern half of VA and NC) Temps again in the 70s. 

Rest of the week looks to stay in the 70s and fairly dry until Friday Night and Saturday when the next set of showers and storms could enter the area.

For the fun fact in weather today, Anchorage, AK is 3.3" short of establishing the snowiest season on record. 

All for now!

On the cusp of #Spring

First off the huge snow today! WOW! Guys, that was A HUGE miss by me.. I had downplayed the event in my mind so much that I was just not on top of it at all! I was then in meeting most of the day, and, since weather cannot make me money, I could not neglect the job!

Amazing reports from Orange County of 8 to 10 inch snows. A heavy band set up and just snowed and snowed! Awesome for them, although I heard driving was a nightmare and many kids were at school!

So we get really cold tonight with lows around 20 in the suburbs, even teens, especially if you have any snow pack! Colder than normal one more day and then a jump in temps! Highs in the 40s tomorrow to around 60 Wednesday, to 65 to 75 Thursday!

Temps cool to the 50 Friday and Saturday, but rebound again Sunday!

Looking at the long term maps, warmth is shown to overspread, not just the US, but into Canada! That is a good sign for Spring!

#snow impacting most of VA!

Snow has made it over most of Virginia - Heaviest bande along the Charlottesville - Frericksburg area as this seems to be the are just north of teh main low - 4 - ^' of snow there! 1-4" elsewhere south down to Richmond - Winter's last grasp!

60s and 70s expected Thursday and Friday!

#Snow in the forecast - especially central VA

We will have a cooler day with highs in the 40s to close to 50 in the south. It will be cloudy. Some areas along the coast are seeing rain showers as well.  

Tonight we start to see a clipper's influence and areas from Roanoke to Charlottesville and across the central part of VA could see 1 to 2" of snow with some local amounts near 3" in higher elevations. Areas across the southern half of VA may see some flakes and maybe up to 1/2" of snow on the grassy areas! Pinpointing the highest snow band has been a bit of a challenge. Highs tomorrow will only be in the low and mid 40s for many. Areas up to the MD/VA border MAY see a few flakes, but not much precipitation north of teh Fredericksburg area. May be able to put out a map later today. In general, higher elevations to see the higher 1-2" and on grass. Also, areas where snow starts before sunrise. Also,  snow is not forecast to shift northward up into the MD and DC areas at this point.

After the cold Monday, some warming Tuesday by about 10 degrees, another 10 for Wednesday, and then 5 degrees of so for Thursday and Friday as temps soar to the mid 60s and mid 70s.

Rain and a bit cooler for the weekend.

Rains ends - cooler - #snow showers and then back to Spring!

Thoughts and prayers to the hundreds that were affected by yesterday's major outbreak. 95 Tornado reports and at least 31 deaths so far. A serious day and it is amazing to have had so many so early.

The Mid Atlantic will see rain slowly winding down. Eastern NC and SC still seeing serious amounts of rain and the chance for severe. Please be careful down there.

The weather dries out and temps will fall this afternoon in the west and breezy conditions increase. Cooler days tomorrow with highs in the 50 to 55 degree range. The odd issue is that we will see a chance of snow showers Sunday Night into Monday morning for most of Virginia and Maryland. Temps in the 40s to low 50s Monday, 50 to 55 Tuesday, Mid 50s to mid 60s Wednesday, and then mid 60s to mid 70s by Thursday and Friday. After Monday we will see dry conditions!

All for now!

Rain has quickly overspread area!

Look for rain and embedded thunderstorms rest of the day, tonight, and first half of tomorrow!

All for now!

Rain and Thunder & Severe Chances next 24 hours - Brief cool down to follow!

Cloudy skies will spread over the region today with showers and storms on the increase from the west. Some storms have already fired in SC and NC and that will continue on that line as it moves north and east.

SPC has highlighted the western half of VA, MD, NC, and SC for a slight risk of severe. Be alert to radio and news outlets for potential watches and/or warnings. - Of Note, a moderate risk is there for the far SW part of the state of VA and a stripe of Western WV -

Showers and storms will blow through overnight with breezy conditions. Lows will not be much colder than today's highs of 50s and 60s.

Breezy conditions continue tomorrow with improving conditions in the afternoon after morning showers and storms, especially in the east. Temps will climb some and then fall again as the day progresses. Sunday will be about 5 to 10 degrees cooler. Then another cooler day Monday with highs only to the mid 40s north and mid 50s south.

Temps will then step up Tuesday by 5 degrees and Wednesday by another 5 to 10 degrees until Thursday when highs in the 60s and even low 70s visit with dry conditions expected!

All for now!
