The weather is a little unsettled for the Ohio River Valley and the Mid-Atlantic states. However, a major Nor’ Easter is creating terrible weather for the NE.

An upper level trough of low pressure is sliding across our area (graphic below), and that’s what is created the spotty snow showers some areas experienced.

UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE

Thankfully, it didn’t amount to much (as expected).

SNOW EARLY...MAINLY FOR NE NC

The greatest area of lift in the atmosphere is moving offshore of our coast; so, the chance for a snow shower ends by 11AM. However, clouds will hang around this afternoon, but there will be some sunshine mixing in.  Cooler weather is on deck for today with Mid-Upper 40s.

TEMPERATURE TREND

Yet, the winds will become more SW by tomorrow…leading to a brief warm up.  Highs will climb to near 60° for Thursday, but it’ll be a little cooler Friday as the winds switch back to the NW behind a weak front that’ll cross Thursday night.

For now, St.Patrick’s Day looks nice but chilly…stay tuned.
