Now that another weak Winter Weather event has passed, our progressive transient weather pattern shifts back to the warm side for the next 7-10 days (depending on the model you look at) with our next rain chances set for late Saturday afternoon into early Sunday. A strong Low pressure system (Great Lakes Cutter) will bring much of the Mid-Atlantic and Virginia mild temperatures and a chance of rain showers, some of which could bring a round of strong to severe weather to the region.
Once this weekend system clears out, the upcoming week will be topsy turvy in terms of temperatures as we go into the 60s to near 70 before a strong arctic cold front makes it way to the Eastern US late Wednesday into Thursday.
For those of you that like the warmth, enjoy it while you can. After Wednesday, WINTER RETURNS.
We will have a discussion later on the potential pattern change coming for the last part of January into February in another post.
