A weak and quick moving area of low pressure will slide off the mid-Atlantic coast tonight and bring a light snowfall to much of the region into Wednesday. An arctic front will then cross the region into Thursday with a much cooler and more arctic air mass, but it will only be a glancing blow as temperatures will moderate back to seasonable levels into the weekend.
