After nearly 60 degrees today, a strong cold front will drastically drop highs this weekend into the 30s!

Lows: Falling from the 50s into the 30s | Wind: NNW 5-10

Saturday: Mostly cloudy and cold with flurries. Snow possible late in the day especially S&E of D.C.

Highs: Upper 30s | Wind: N 10-15 G 25

Sunday: Partly sunny, very cold and breezy.

Highs: Low to mid 30s; Wind chill 20s | Wind: NNW 10-20 G 30 mph

Scattered showers will be developing this evening in advance of a cold front that will have noticeable effects on our weekend weather. Today was nothing less than sensational with sunshine and temperatures approaching 60 degrees. Temperatures will be slow to fall this evening. But as it approaches midnight, colder air will arrive and may change the rain to snow showers. Temperatures will fall into the 30s. Areas of light snow will be possible tomorrow…especially during the afternoon and evening. This will be in response to a developing area of low pressure that will be riding along the cold front. Accumulations from tonight’s snow showers and tomorrow’s snow will total around an inch at most on grassy areas. At least that is the way we see it working out right now. Depending on the evolution and track of this low pressure center, more measurable snow could affect Delmarva. Partly sunny, breezy and even colder conditions are in our Sunday forecast. Looking ahead to Monday, it looks like we will see mostly sunny skies with highs around 40 degrees.
