A weak and quick moving area of low pressure will slide off the mid-Atlantic coast today and bring a light accumulating snowfall to much of the region this morning. 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.
