We’re headed to the far northern portion of Virginia for today’s forecast. They are generally sheltered from Great Lakes induced weather, but they can be unduly punished by the Atlantic Ocean. Do either have any nefarious plans for the weekend?
At 215PM, ET, winchester was reporting a brisk west wind, overcast skies and a temperature of 36. The westerlies across the region were a response to the continued circulation off the Labrador Coast, with just enough moisture that the lift provided by the Appalachians was producing a few mountain snow showers, and east of there, there was a mid level cloud deck making things seem bleak.
The upper level pattern features a broad trough through the center of the coutnry, and the associated large scale circulation around the Labrador low is expected to continue, weak and light on precipitation though it may be. That precipitation will be unable to clear the Appalachians, and west winds might even help temperatures rise along the coast. In Winchester, there will be clouds, but there is unlikely to be any snow to go along with them.
