.FORECAST SUMMARY...
After a brief warm up to near normal temperatures, a dry cold 
front will move through the region today and allow cool high
pressure to bring well below normal temperatures back to the
Appalachians and central mid Atlantic region through Thursday.
A low pressure system will then develop along the Gulf Coast 
region and move up the Atlantic coast this weekend. This will 
bring a good chance of rain, and possibly some wet snow, back to
the forecast for Friday and into the weekend.
