More snow and a cold snap are expected over the bank holiday bringing a fabled "White Easter" even after the clocks have gone forward for British Summer Time. Our high temperatures on Wednesday will be in the mid to upper 30s.

Temperatures continue to lag behind normal for the northeastern 2/3rds of the area, but we're Punta Cana compared to the east coast where they continue with the regular snowstorms. As it moves to the east, it will then turn the winds back to the south.

Slocum told The Enterprise that thunder and lightning during relatively mild temperatures at night are highly unusual.

The snowfall is heavier to our north, and travel could be hazardous in Northern Virginia throughout the day.

Temperatures will soar to an nearly balmy 11C by Saturday, though next weekend will witness heavy showers and winds in many areas.


We are expecting scattered snow showers starting after lunch on Tuesday into the afternoon.

Precipitation will begin between 3 and 7 a.m. Wednesday, with the snow becoming heavy in the afternoon before tapering off between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Thursday. As an area of low pressure approaches, light snow develops in the early morning across the south, slowly spreading north and mixes with sleet and rain.

Meteorologist Matt DiNardo says that during the late morning commute, any mixture will change over to all snow and will steadily continue throughout the day. Expect sunny skies on Friday with highs near 50. There could be spotty rain or snow showers through the day, with temperatures well below average in the 30s.

Netweather forecaster Jo Farrow warned there will be a risk of some wind and rain before a largely dry weekend. The pressure gradient between these two systems is quite large, and that's putting a squeeze on the winds flowing around these two systems causing the winds to move more rapidly.
