End of Winter Weekend?

Jason Samenow @ 12:20 PM

For all intents and purposes, winter may be over. Beginning today, highs will at least reach the 50s for the next week or so, with lows not reaching freezing. While we may have some cool days later in March and even a few more flakes, the chance of sustained cold and accumulating snow diminishes with every passing day.


Forecast Confidence: MediumCloudy and milder. We'll start off the day with patchy fog and cool temps (in the mid 30s). Some sunshine should emerge through the clouds by midday, but this is no sure thing. By late afternoon, clouds increase again ahead of a weak cold front. If we get some sun prior to late afternoon, high temperatures will approach 60. If not, the low to mid 50s may be the best we can do.

Overnight, it will be cloudy with a 60% chance of showers. Lows will be relatively mild, in the mid 40s.


Forecast Confidence: HighGradual clearing, mild. After some morning cloudiness, high pressure should build in behind the weak cold front from the previous night and it will become mostly sunny. Temperatures will remain seasonably mild, with highs in the mid 50s.

The last good ski weekend?

This weekend may be the last really good weekend to hit the slopes in the Mid Atlantic this winter. The southern Pennsylvania, western Maryland and northern West Virginia resorts received 6" or so of powder Wednesday and have retained cold temperatures through the week. As a result, most of the resorts have mid-winter conditions and all of their terrain open. With temperatures forecast to be well into the 50s for many areas next week, spring snow conditions will gradually begin to take hold, bare spots will emerge and before you know it, it will be time to bring out the golf clubs and tennis rackets...
