This is some pretty interesting stuff. Back in February, the mid-Atlantic region got pummeled by one snowstorm after another, and many new snowfall records were established. In one storm alone at the beginning of February, the northern and western suburbs of Baltimore got more than 25 inches of snow, and the Philadelphia area had similar amouts! In March, the storm track was roughly the same, but cold air just ran out. The result was a tremendous amount of rain especially in New England but virtually no snow at all.

How often do you see three major storms off the mid-Atlantic coast in March and not one of them produces any snow from the Virginias to southern New England? I don't think I have ever seen that before. When storms turn northward into the Great Lakes, you expect it to rain in the East, but not when storms are off the coast.

Now, snow is the farthest thing from anyone's mind. A very warm weather pattern has taken hold and temperatures will be in the 70s and 80s throughout the mid-Atlantic region Friday.
