    Here is my video showing the weekend outlook and what lies ahead for next week. A band of snow is likely to affect places from central New York to south central New England tonight and early tomorrow. A second storm Sunday night may track a little farther north. This could mean snow for central and northern New England but rain farther south.

    Doctors' Day falls each year March 30, a tribute to Dr. Crawford Long, who first used ether for anesthesia at the end of March 1842. The day should not be confused with the birth of the American Medical Association, which was founded in 1847 to help doctors get referrals, distribute medical information and buy golf balls wholesale. There's this doctor named Malcomb who plays golf but isn't too good at it. I said, if you want to play better, Mal: practice.

    As we diagnose the body of weather information, we note the Midwest is infected by virus clouds, showers and thunderstorms. This is a sore point for people wanting to get outside, but the outlook for recovery this weekend is good. They just have to be patient. Along the East Coast, there's little that should cause real strain today; hardly anything that could inter rupture plans. Odds fever a real warmup to the 50s and 60s, so if you're itching to get outside, I say swell. No need to stay indoors and leave your TV on HMO.

    How long will this post-equinoctal fine spell last. This idea is still intestine, but there could be some rain during the weekend. Early next week could bring the chills. Why? Let me exspleen. Cold air is still a liver up in the arctic. One look at the subzero temperatures in northern Canada and you know I am not kidneying. As the circulation aloft is shunted southward, that cold air could be transplanted into the Northeast. Eventually, it'll be rejected by spring, but in April there can be complications. One thing's for sure: once people get used to spraintime weather and have all those flowery thoughts, they are glad to see the cold air flu. Who wants a relapse? If cold air moves into physician, just about everybody will hope it faces pediatrician.

    But let's not get sick over next week. It's like the person who loves the outdoors but refuses to take a hike because he's worried about poison IV. It's enough to make you sick. Also, the area from Pennsylvania south could wind up being immune from cold shots next week. In any case, the central states get stuck by an injection heat the next few days because of the influenzas of southwest winds. It gets gets warm and sunny, and if you don't like it, you are free to make your analysis.

    For the last few days, we have speculated about the chance of snow tonight from central New York into south-central New England. It seems the accumulation will be in a rather narrow band. Our snow warning department made this map:
