Tonight, with the rain and snow well away from the region, one should expect dry but very cold air to be with us. Temperatures this evening will drop down into the teens for most areas and the single digits along the Allegheny Front as an Arctic high system builds in from the north. Winds, combined with chilly overnight temperatures, will make it feel like the single digits for most of our region with below zero temperatures along the Allegheny Front!! As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for that area overnight. Mainly sunny skies and dry weather will stick around through the weekend as a coastal storm slide south of D, C.; however, the one caveat is that the storm could bring some light snow to parts of southern Maryland late Friday into Saturday. The coldest overnight temperatures are likely going to occur Friday evening and into Saturday morning with some areas along the Allegheny Mountains potentially having below zero temperatures. The overall pattern continues to be chilly heading into next week, with the next weather maker approaching the region on Tuesday. Stay tuned from WDVM on whether next week’s storm will be in the form of rain or snow.
