WIND ADVISORY from 6 p.m. this evening until 11a.m tomorrow, expect 40 to 50 miles per hours.
Temperatures will jump to near 70 degrees this afternoon ahead of a strong cold front. Clouds will thicken along with the likelihood for scattered showers. As the cold front moves closer, winds will increase and the atmosphere will become more unstable. Thunderstorms will develop late this afternoon and into the evening hours, moving from west to east. Some storms may contain gusty winds, heavy downpours and may have the potential to become severe.
Frigid air will overspread the mid-Atlantic as the front moves further to the east. Expect a huge temperature swing over a short period of time. Wind gusts will exceed 40 miles per hour adding an extra chill to the air. Highs tomorrow only reach the middle to upper 30s.
Fortunately, the super cold air will only stick around for a day. Highs by Friday will be in the lower 50s. Saturday appears to be even warmer with daytime temperatures in the lower 60s.

This photo shows a frosted bubble that's resting on an elevated surface, just above the ground, outside of the observatory in Rimavska Sobota, Slovakia. It’s approximately 1 inch in diameter and was created from water, detergent and sugar. The air temperature at the time was 19F. There was sufficient water vapor in the cold air to coat the bubble in frost crystals.
