Forecast Discussion

With intervals of clouds and sunshine today, temperatures will be rather mild for this time of year. Developing low-pressure coming out of Oklahoma tonight will track eastward into the Tennessee Valley this weekend, reaching the Mid-Atlantic coast by Sunday morning.

This low will send a strong cold front into the state Saturday night. Rain will precede the front on Saturday, with the steadiest rain scheduled for Saturday afternoon and evening.

Behind the front, a piece of Arctic air will arrive for Sunday, promoting morning high temperatures, with falling temperatures thereafter. Perhaps the coldest air thus far this season arrives for Sunday night.

Cold and generally clear conditions will be with us on Monday, with slowly moderating temperatures thereafter.

A new storm system takes shape over the nation’s midsection on Tuesday, with the associated frontal system making a run at the area for next Wednesday. Another period of significant rainfall looks likely for Tuesday night and Wednesday, followed by another turn to colder weather.
