March 26th, 2013 Forecast

Today's snow and slop will gradually wind down from west to east this evening, with a having decent day setting up on Tuesday although it will still be pretty cool compared to average.

Most of the precipitation from today will be pulling out of the region by between 6 and 8 PM, with clouds lingering for the much of the night.  Lows by morning will range from the 20's in the colder outlying burbs to the low 30's along I-95.  Winds will generally be light overnight from the northwest.

Tuesday features a mix of clouds and sunshine, with a bit of a breeze developing from midday and into the afternoon hours.  A shower, sprinkle, or flurry can't be ruled out in the afternoon hours as the airmass aloft is cold and the March sun works to destabilize the atmosphere, leading to cold air clouds developing.  Highs generally range between 43 northwest and 49 south of the city. Winds could gust to over 20 mph.

In the wake of whatever falls today, the balance of the week should feature dry weather by and large. There could be a shower, sprinkle, or flurry in the afternoons of Wednesday and Thursday but no large scale storm systems are on the horizon until we get to next Monday.  Temperatures will gradually moderate over the next week as well, with the region getting into the upper 50's (perhaps) next week!
