The weekend and the Manitoba Mauler...

Jason Samenow @ 2:38 AM

Photo by Kevin Ambrose, Weatherbook.comA weak cold front will move through the area today bringing a few clouds, but little or no precipitation. After highs in the upper 40s today, the frontal passage will cool things off a bit for the weekend...

On Saturday, expect partly cloudy skies with highs in the low 40s.

On Sunday, the Manitoba Mauler approaches and causes clouds to increase. High temperatures will again be in the low 40s.

Based on the current guidance, any precipitation from the Mauler should occur Sunday night. A period of light snow or flurries is possible that could linger into Monday morning with little or no accumulation. Of course, this remains a bit of an uncertain forecast, as models are still trying to get a grip on the details of the storm's evolution. But the overall pattern and characteristics of the storm system are just not particularly favorable for accumulating snow in DC this time around. In fact, I'm downgrading my forecasted storm impact from the other day.

Potential Storm Impact:

Of course, this forecast could still change. So keep checking back over the weekend.

Weekend ideas: Several local ski resorts will open (or just opened) including Whitetail, Liberty, Roundtop, Massanutten, Wisp and Wintergreen. These resorts will just have a limited number of runs open, so you might want to wait another week or so for more snowmaking (and help from mother nature?) unless you're really itching to hit the slopes.
