Have you ever been to Dover? That’s an old Craig Ferguson joke for you, if you want to use it at parties. Anyways, I did want to note that Victoria-Weather has a new, dedicated Twitter account: Its @Vic_wx, so give it a follow!
At 1158AM, ET, Dover was reporting overcast skies with a temperature of 39 degrees, Clearing was just across the Chesapeake, as northern Virginia was reporting clear skies. Unfortunately, across Delaware Bay, southern New Jersey was reporting light snow. It’s all in relation to a larger area of low pressure in New England that continues to import moisture and cooler air into the mid-Atlantic, however the upper level support is diminishing.
Judging by model guidance, ceilings and the threat of light snow showers will continue through the day today before drier air works into the area late this evening. Judging by the visible satellite, Dover seems as though they are on the cusp of the ceilings and snow this afternoon, but with a north wind, expected through the day tomorrow, it wouldn’t be terribly surprising to see Dover in the clouds and even with an isolated snowflake all the way until Saturday afternoon. Regardless of the sky cover, Dover will be cooler than normal as we head into the weekend.

It appears as though I am the most pessimistic in all the land. We’ll see how things play out in Delaware! Here is satellite showing just how close clear skies are to the Demarva. Remember, flow is from the north, however.
