While we sit in the 40s this weekend, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. will both climb into the 70s. It doesn't look like it will be warmer than 55 degrees through the next 10 days. Currently, March is colder than February, January and December, which is quite rare. Showers, possibly mixed with sleet and wet snow will continue through the weekend. Don't cancel any outdoor plans, but be ready to head inside or bring your rain gear just in case. Minor snow accumulations are possible in northern New England. If we see a washout in the next few days it will likely be Monday. Steady rain will move in during the morning and could linger through the afternoon. Dry weather returns mid week along with some warmer air. A quick look at Opening Day - we are forecasting highs in the mid 50s with a mix of sun and cloud and a chance of showers.
