Cold Front Moves Across Washington This Weekend

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Through tonight, a coastal low-pressure system will move off the mid-Atlantic coast.

After that, a cold front will move across the area on Friday. The return of high pressure will bring the area back into the spotlight from the northwest on Friday night and into Saturday morning.

Sunday afternoon and into Monday morning, a powerful area of low pressure will affect the region. High pressure is expected to resume by the middle of next week.

For Friday

On Friday, things begin to heat up a little bit more significantly. As it moves northeastward away from the coast, the aforementioned coastal low will gain in strength further.

This will both boost the strength of the winds and aid in the slowing of a cold front that will pass over the area throughout the day Friday.

This front will be accompanied by strong winds as well as a dramatic temperature decrease, the air mass behind it is really on par, if not somewhat colder, than the coldest air we've experienced so far this winter, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will begin to drop before nightfall on Friday and will continue to drop into Saturday, with some temperatures returning to the 20s throughout the day.

As a result of developing low pressure to our southwest, thick clouds will filter above, limiting the amount of rebound we see. However, anticipate mostly dry weather until Saturday night, at the very least.

We may see some clearing Saturday night, and with the high to our north building in a little more ahead of the storm, lows may dip into the teens for most of us.
