Although not as blustery as yesterday, the arctic air mass remains well entrenched across the region keeping temperatures well below average. Late tonight, an upper level weather disturbance will pass south of Washington and may produce some light snow or flurries. The exceptionally dry nature of the air will prevent significant accumulations in the metro area…perhaps a dusting to less than 1 inch. There is a chance for 2 inches across parts of lower Southern Maryland.
Partly cloudy and breezy weather is in our forecast for tomorrow. By Friday, our attention turns to the approach of another upper level disturbance. There is a good chance of light snow developing during the afternoon and continuing into the evening. Snowfall totals will be very light once again…perhaps a dusting to an inch of accumulation will be possible. Breezy and cold weather is likely on Saturday. And then on Sunday, a slow but steady warming trend begins.
