Increasing Wind, Interesting Up Top

As strong upper-level low will move off the Mid-Atlantic coast tonight. Periodic showers will continue most of the night. At the 5000 foot peaks it will be a different world overnight as precipitation falls in the form of snow showers, which changes over to rime icing and a little freezing rain toward morning. All precipitation types come to an end later Tuesday morning.
Don't forget the wind! Northwest winds increase to 20-30 mph tonight with gusts to 55 mph late tonight. Wind continues into Tuesday--AM gusts to 55 mph. Winds diminishing in the afternoon becoming light Tuesday night.
Finally, extended cold returns Thursday.

Forecast Discussion

A deep area of low pressure will move off the Mid-Atlantic coast tonight. Periodic showers will continue in the NW flow behind the low. Elevations at and above 5000 feet will see snow showers changing to rime icing later tonight. A period of freezing rain may also fall. A few slushy inches are possible. Strong winds develop tonight - gusting to 55 mph late tonight and early Tuesday. All the various precipitation types come to an end Tuesday morning.

As the storm system heads northeast, clouds decrease Tuesday afternoon. Strong winds diminish in the afternoon and become light Tuesday night. Temperatures are cool.

We have one last day of spring-like weather Wednesday as mild high pressure moves east across the Gulf of Mexico.

A cold front from the northwest Wednesday night brings a return of winter. A stray shower is possible Wednesday night. Then NW wind increases and temperatures fall Thursday. Snow showers and flurries are possible late Thursday and Thursday night. Cold weather will be here to stay for a while and disturbances in the northwest flow, combined with relatively warm Great Lakes waters will keep the chance of snow showers and flurries in our forecast Friday through Sunday. Timing and intensity details for these disturbances are impossible from this far out. But... Skiers, it's your turn again.
