    Beware the Ides of March

    March 15, 2013; 8:17 AM ET

    Friday 10 a.m.

    Here is today's forecast movie:

    Beware the Ides of March! That warning was dramatic foreshadowing for Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Shakespeare's plays may help us decide if we need to be wary. Today in the Northeast may be As You Like It in terms of no storms, but it is certainly not a Midsummer Night's Dream.

    It's been A Winter's Tale on and off for months. Measure for Measure, it has been quite snowy in parts of New England, but not in the New York to Washington, D.C., venues. A low pressure area that will take the stage for the Merry Wives of Windsor (Ontario) will cause some snow (rain in the south, ye knaves) in the Hamlets of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey tonight and perhaps tomorrow. Unless we are making a Comedy of Errors, in which case all Love's Labour's Lost, the chance of widespread snow in the I95 corridor seems to be Much Ado About Nothing.

    For early next week, however, we could see a Tempest brewing. A storm from the southwest could bring snow north and rain south in the Northeast quarter of the country between Monday night and Tuesday night. The merchant of menace will be a storm that could also cause thunderstorms in Georgia and Coriolanus (where it will be sunny and warm this weekend). More wintry chill will be on stage for spring's opening act on Wednesday, and the chill may offer many encores right into the next week.

    As usual Cassius later for more details on your forum for weather, AccuWeather.com. And now, I think it's time for me to leave the stage, right? Hark, ye knaves!

      With a high pressure area over Maine, a low pressure area over western Indiana and an upper-air storm spinning over the western Great Lakes, the stage is set for wet weather in the Middle and North Atlantic states.

    • Northeast: Warm through Friday, then cooler

      September 21, 2016; 9:45 AM ET

      A cold front from eastern Canada will slide southward along the East coast between late Friday and the end of the weekend. For the area from Philadelphia to Boston, where temperatures will reach the summery 80s each day through Friday, it will mean a noticeable change to cooler weather.
