Mid Atlantic Weather outlook for the DC, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina Areas
A few showers were around this morning and areas right along the coast may have some showers today. We will see temps seasonably cool or just a bit below normal. Good radiational cooling will set up tonight so Frost and Freeze advisories have been posted pretty much, west of I-95. Temps will dip into the 30s for most (20s even in the Mountains where the growing season is over) –
Warmer conditions Tomorrow and Saturday with highs into the 60s and some 70s south. Increasing clouds and showers and rain will be making its way from west to east through the day. Overnight Saturday and Sunday there will be a period of rain, some heavy. Winds will increase and temperatures will be dropping through the day. Highs may be low 60s east after Midnight but in general, 50s east and even 40s west. Far western areas (mountains) will see rain change to some snow and it will accumulate in the higher elevations!
Winds and clouds will keep temperatures from getting too cold Sunday night and cool weather Monday with highs in the low 50s west and near 60 far south Monday.
Long range looks like it will warm up some after this cold shot as the real cold air is now looking to be in the west and not the east. We will see.. very volatile time of year in long range forecasting!
