Now that the snow is over, our weather focus is on the cold. Areas that have snow on the ground will stay colder than those that don't. Here's the snow cover map for the region as of this morning:

It will look nice, however. A weak front will pass through our area today/tonight, but no precipitation is expected, just another shot of cooler, dry air. Starting this evening, we are in for a spell of about 40 hours staying below the freezing point. Gradual warming into the weekend, but still staying below average. This will keep some of the snow around. For the record, we got .9" at Reagan National. When you combine that with Sunday's snow, we have almost as much as we did for all of the last two seasons.

A coastal storm is expected in our area on Saturday. It's too soon to say exactly what will happen. Right now I am expecting rain with a little snow mixed in at times. We'll have a better idea late tomorrow. Looks much worse for New England.
