A chilly rain is invading the Northeast. The highest elevations might even see a few flakes of snow.
The cold front responsible for ushering in a major cold wave across the eastern two-thirds of the country is moving away from the East Coast today, solidifying the final push of chilly air into the East.
Despite the cold front moving away, a storm is still bringing two bands of chilly rain to the Northeast. This includes Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston.
Highs will struggle into the low to mid-50s in all three cities as a period of rain dampens the region.
Farther west across the interior, the higher elevations will see their first snow of the season. It will primarily affect locales at 2,500 feet or higher.
The snowflakes will first fly across the mountains on West Virginia, western Maryland, and western Pennsylvania this afternoon before advancing into the mountains of New England tonight.
More tranquil weather will settle in on Monday as a high pressure system builds over the Northeast.
Despite the tranquility, the chilly weather will continue to be felt before a gradual warm-up through the middle of next week.
