Low pressure moving through the Southeastern states brought more afternoon clouds across the southern portion of the state, which will linger through the night, as a weak cold front slips south, but without any precipitation. Friday’s relatively mild readings in the mid-40s will be the warmest day for a while.
A northern disturbance will merge with the southern wave to produce a strong winter along the Mid-Atlantic Coast, but rain and interior snow will stay well to the east of the Ohio Valley.
A chilly northerly flow will develop on the back side of the system, resulting in a seasonably cold and brisk weekend, with lingering clouds and possibly an early flurry Saturday. High temperatures will peak in the mid- to upper 30s this weekend, under a variably cloudy sky, and morning lows will fall below freezing.
Another southern system will bring more clouds on Monday, with moisture staying south of the Ohio River. A weak cold front will reinforce the early December chill.
No major storms are expected next week, with high starting off in the mid-30s, slowly warming to the 40s midweek, and nighttime lows in the seasonal mid-20s.
