The storm system behaved fairly close to model predictions that started about 24 hours ago. Before then, I pretty much was unsure of what would happen. In Northern Virginia we had a dusting. Areas up against the mountains had 1 – 2" and higher elevations actually had 3 to five inches of snow!
Today, snow showers will be present, especially this morning. Some instability could cause more this afternoon. As the storm gets wound up, winds will be gusty today making it cold! We will be about 10 degrees below normal.
Tomorrow and Thursday we will continue cold, with highs around 30 and in the 30s in the north, 30 to low 40s in the south.
A much milder trend begins to show up Friday into the weekend with temps reaching the 50s and even 60s in the south again by Monday.
Longer term, it does appear a shift back to cold may occur about the middle of February. Seasonal temperatures will occur next week.
All for now!
