A Taste Of Winter For The East

An unusually strong trough of low pressure across the east is bringing cold and wet conditions to the region.

Ridiculous weather is a good way to describe what our weekend was like. Ridiculous cold can also be said too. Keep in mind the coldest average high is 50°, and that's in January. With highs in the upper 40s to around 50° on Sunday, that put our temperatures an unbelievable 25° below normal. It could have been worse. Areas from Pennsylvania, to northwest New Jersey, and New England have seen accumulating snow. Everybody is scratching there heads, thinking is this really the middle part of October. So this means it'll be even colder in January. Not necessarily.

A frost advisory is in effect for areas west of I-95 tonight, where some clearing skies could cause temperatures to fall near frosty levels. It could be our turn Monday night into Tuesday morning as skies clear with light winds, and temperatures likely to be in the 30s. More normal weather moves in during the week as temperatures warm into the 70s. That'll feel like a heatwave after this weekend.
