Huge Temperature Swings to Sock the Northeast Ahead of Early-Week Storm

Dr. Jeff Masters, February 13, 2016

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

From frigid, near-record lows this weekend to mild, soggy highs on Tuesday, New York and New England are about to experience one of the most dramatic chill-down-to-warm-up sequences in memory. The brief but sharp cold will extend across the eastern U.S., but the most dramatic temperature swings are expected from Washington, D.C., northward. Some locations in New York and New England will rocket from temperatures near or below 0°F on Saturday night--with much lower wind chills--to readings near or above 50°F by Tuesday. The exact track of an early-week winter storm--impossible to pin down at this point--will dictate how a potpourri of heavy rain, sleet, freezing rain, and snow evolve across the eastern U.S.
