AFTER A BEAUTIFUL DAY ON SATURDAY, WINTER WEATHER IS POSSIBLE IN PARTS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC STATES SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY… PRECIPITATION TYPE WILL BE A CHALLENGE TO FORECASTERS WITH THIS LATE SEASON WINTER STORM

This winter just won’t give up. Just when you think it is safe to put away the ice scrapers and winter coats, another winter storm may be impacting some parts of the Mid-Atlantic States Sunday night and Monday. Let’s first talk about today (Saturday), which will be a spectacular day for this time of year with temperatures about 10 degrees above normal. Meanwhile, a storm system will be developing well to our southwest and will be impacting our weather on Sunday. Clouds will be increasing and rain should spread into the region from the southwest during the afternoon on Sunday. A new low pressure system may redevelop off the coast which will continue the precipitation well into Monday. The main issue with this system is the surface temperatures. Some models are indicating that it will be cold enough for a wintry mix, even into Hampton Roads Sunday night. However, it seems that the NWS is not buying this just yet and is forecasting plain rain for Hampton Roads. Areas to our north and west may get a significant snowstorm so if you are traveling, be mindful of that and monitor forecasts for Northern Virginia. This storm system may bring severe weather today to parts of Eastern Texas and Louisiana including the surrounding areas… March is known for large temperature fluctuations and strong winds and this month is living up to that reputation. Astronomical Spring is less than one week away so hang in there everyone! Have a good weekend!
