Mid-Atlantic – The Week Ahead (Mar 6-13)

It’s raining. Most of the area should have about 1.0-1.5 inches of rain before the storm moves off to the north and east tonight. It has already changed over to snow in the Appalachians, and it may switch over to snow briefly in the DC area.

Monday and Tuesday will be a bit drier as temps hold near seasonal levels, if not slightly below. The rain will come again Wednesday night into Thursday as another generous amount falls over the region. Right now it looks like most will see another 0.5-1.0″ of rain mid-week. Like the current storm, this system will likely drop some snow on the mountains on the back edge.

The forecast starts to get tricky again as we head into the weekend. A secondary low could keep the mid-week systems close to the coast on Friday and Saturday as another system moves in from the Great Lakes region. The most likely situation for Friday and Saturday is mostly cloudy skies with rain showers possible. Drier conditions are forecast for most of the region on Sunday, with a chance of rain and snow showers in the western Apps.

Is it May yet? I have a feeling that March will continue to be miserable for most of the region this year. April could be hit or miss.
