Clipper continues to track well southeast of our area with a few inches of snowfall from Kentucky through Maryland.

For us, this dry cold front passing right now with some cloudiness will drop temperatures to 30-35 by 9 p.m.

Another clipper is upstream, albeit with less snowfall.

This will pivot through this evening-early tonight with clouds a few spotty flurries & snow showers possible.  A localized light dusting is possible in our northeastern counties.

Shot of quite cold air will arrive behind it.

Lows of 18-24 with wind chills 4-10 are likely by tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow looks bright with lots of sunshine as any lingering stratocumulus in the far northeast exit.  However, some high & mid clouds will increase late in the day as front begins to migrate back northward as a warm front.

Regardless, highs will only run at 28-33, though winds will diminish.

Bring your trash cans in tomorrow night!
