Rain continues for Most areas east of Mountains -less west – cool and cold SNOW?


As a coastal low forms today continued disturbances will cause rain to fall. Heaviest rains will be east of the mountains and more northern VA and MD than Southern VA and NC. As the coastal low finally gets going colder air will try and wrap into the system and higher elevations could see some snow. Amounts will be light with maybe 1 to 1.5 inches. As lower dewpoints and cooler air wraps in a quick little mix of snow could make it to the DC and BWI suburbs tomorrow morning. The cool wet weather will slowly exit tomorrow. Finally some sun and cool conditions return Monday with highs 50s and low 60s.

This has been a very wild weather event. Very cold with record cold maximum temperatures in many areas! Sleet reported at the onset in northern VA as well as snow in the mountains.

We will see a much drier week until at least Thursday into Friday when a front will cross the area. Temps will generally be the in the 60s and low 70s with lows 30s early in the week rising to 40s later in the week in the north and 40s and 50s in the south.
