Forecast Last Updated at Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 6:23AM

Consistently Below Normal

The chilly pattern will continue through the rest of the workweek, as temperatures average about 5-degrees below normal through Friday. We expect a continuation of dry weather, although there may be a bit more cloudiness by Friday. The weekend starts with milder temperatures, and then by Sunday, some rain enters the picture by late in the day.

Forecast Discussion

The day starts out cold, but there will be some afternoon moderation out ahead of a reinforcing cold front that will be pushing through the area early on Thursday. The front will maintain chilly temperatures through Friday, as a fresh, Canadian air mass arrives in behind it.

More dry weather is expected, with only an increase in some mid and high level cloudiness expected by Friday.
Moderation will kick into gear this weekend, as high pressure shifts off the Mid-Atlantic coast on Saturday and redirects our wind flow to more southerly.

The approach of the next frontal system will have some Gulf moisture to tap into, so we do expect some rain by late Sunday, perhaps lingering into early next week. Perhaps that will clean some of the the crud off the roads by then.
