Following the coldest night since the middle of February for much of the northeastern U.S. and southeastern Canada tonight, one last cold shot with some snow in some areas will follow early next week.
Temperatures will plummet tonight, leading to a hard freeze in many areas. For example, temperatures will drop to around 10 degrees (minus 12 Celsius) in Montreal, the teens to around 20 in the central Appalachians, and the 20s along much of the Interstate 95 corridor.
Tender plants recently purchased at garden centers, will succumb in these temperatures, so be sure to bring them in off the porch or patio.
Temperatures will rebound under sunshine Saturday. However, the morning will be quite brisk in coastal areas. It may take the better part of the day for winds to diminish in the maritime provinces.
One Last Snowstorm?
A storm will overspread the region Sunday into Monday. Expect rain for most of the mid-Atlantic and southeastern New England.
Enough cold air will linger over part of the eastern Great Lakes, upstate New York, much of northern and western New England, Ontario, Quebec and northern New Brunswick for precipitation to fall as snow.
The storm has potential to leave a foot (30 centimeters) of snow behind from the Thousand Islands region to much of the St. Lawrence Valley, the Adirondacks and northern New England.
Several inches of snow could fall in a swath from the Alleghenies to the Endless Mountains.
Since the storm will reorganize, strengthen and stall after moving into the region, winds will kick up, leading to a driving rain and perhaps gales from eastern Massachusetts to Nova Scotia, causing above-normal tides.
Enough rain may fall on portions of eastern New England, Nova Scotia and southeastern New Brunswick to lead to flooding.
Cold, unstable air may produce snow showers in the wake of the storm Monday afternoon and Tuesday in many areas, perhaps lingering through the middle of the week over southeastern Canada.
After that, it appears warmth will overtake the region during the first few days of April, and we may finally say goodbye to winter.
