Here we go again... another week with a hodge podge of weather... cold, snow and then mild.  Today high pressure keeps us quiet, but it will be unseasonably cool with highs 15-20 degrees below average. By tomorrow, low pressure develops off the South Carolina Coast. 

 

 

 

It will bring snow to the area beginning in the morning. Most likely between 6a and 9am.  It will snow mainly in the morning, but snow showers still possible in the afternoon. There may be some mixing with rain at times, especially along and east of I-95.  Much of the snow stays on the grassy areas. Around an inch possible in D.C.  Spots West could pick up an additional inch, that would include Frederick, Western Loudoun, and Northern Fauquier counties.

This will not be a major storm here and the interstates should make it off alright.  Snow is tapered off by Tuesday evening. However, the low will combine with energy in the plains states and "bomb out."  That means that the storm will rapidly intensify and pressure will drop dramatically.  This will create very windy conditions in the Northeast.  A blizzard watch has been posted for Cape Cod, MA and the surrounding islands.  Nova Scotia will likely get hit hardest by this storm.  We will be windy on Wednesday.  Some gusts could approach 30-35mph.  Temperatures start warming up on Thursday. 60s to end the week.
