As the low pressure system pivots up to the northeast, high pressure will briefly build into the region, bringing back more sunshine and seasonal temperatures for Thursday! Winds will subside into Thursday and will veer more westerly, which will help boost high temperatures back to more seasonable levels, in the lower-40s.
The dry weather is short-lived as another frontal boundary charges towards the Mid-Atlantic region from the west Thursday night-Friday...bringing back the chance for rain showers and possibly a wintry mix north and west of the city, where temperatures are cooler. It is not looking like the wettest system as snow amounts could range anywhere from a dusting-.50" and rainfall amounts of .10-.25". Even though clouds will win out, strong southerly winds will advect warmer air back into the area on Friday, allowing for temperatures to soar to near 50 degrees!
