The clipper system that brought some light rain and snow overnight and into this morning will depart off the mid-Atlantic coast today with a bubble of high pressure moving in for the remainder of the day. As we begin April on Sunday, another clipper system will dive southeast across the region, but temperatures will be much warmer this time with mainly rain showers expected. A large area of high pressure will then build in for the beginning of the workweek with dry and milder weather returning.
