Following a beautiful and mild start to the weekend in the mid-Atlantic, rain will arrive and keep temperatures down early in the week. Temperatures will tumble even more behind the storm that drenches the mid-Atlantic with rain on Monday into Tuesday.

Rain will begin to change over to snow across the upper Great Lakes region with the colder air moving in by Monday afternoon. By Tuesday and Wednesday, it appears that some wet snow will mix in or even fall alone over the interior Northeast. The northern and central Appalachians could be shocked by the falling snow. It does not appear likely that there would be much accumulation away from the Great Lakes, except for a light dusting in the higher elevations.
