Low pressure well offshore will interact with a potent upper level disturbance dropping out of Canada and the Great Lakes to tap into some Atlantic moisture and bring a period of light accumulating snow for most of the region later today into tonight. Drier and milder weather will arrive into the upcoming weekend as high pressure settles into the region.
