Forecast Last Updated at Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 6:22PM

Clouds Increase

The weekend finished on a pleasant note with ample sunshine. Clouds will be on the increase tonight while temps remain mild for this time of year. The respite continues Monday for the most part, but changes happen quickly thereafter. Clouds and even milder temperatures return tomorrow as Gulf moisture begins to move north ahead an advancing cold front. Rain develops Monday night and continues through midday Tuesday. As colder air presses flurries and snow showers develop late Tuesday afternoon ending late Tuesday night (much like yesterday). Wednesday is significantly colder and blustery.

Forecast Discussion

The majority of the upcoming work week is tame. However, we'll contend with a busy 24-hour episode beginning Monday night and ending Tuesday night.

Low pressure developed in Texas today and moves northeast to the Mid-Atlantic region Tuesday night. Clouds return tonight as moisture begins spilling north from the Gulf. Monday is seasonably mild despite ample cloud cover and I cannot rule out some light rain late tomorrow afternoon. However, steady rain doesn't arrive until Monday night and continues through midday Tuesday until an attending cold front moves through. Temperatures crash Tuesday afternoon with a transition to flurries and snow showers by Tuesday evening (earlier at higher elev's). Once again, it's novelty level stuff and ends Tuesday night.

Wednesday is quite cold and blustery as Canadian based high pressure builds south.

After a couple of seasonably cold mornings Thursday and Friday have moderating afternoon temperatures.

Saturday, an area of low pressure tries to spin up from the Gulf. There are lots of questions. But indeed if it makes far enough north in tandem with leftover cold air we could have a spell of snow or a snow/rain mix Saturday. Those details will get refined in the next couple of days.
