We hate to break it to you, but winter is coming — finally.
After an fall, reports that cold temperatures and potential snowfall might be heading your way later this week. Southern and northern regions will see drastic weather differences, and some will even experience their first snowfall this weekend (we're looking at you, New England!).
People in the Northeast will see the lowest temperatures of the season (for now). According to , temperatures may be no higher than 30 degrees with nighttime lows in the 20s from Philadelphia to Boston on Saturday and Sunday. Washington D.C., on the other hand, will have slightly higher temperatures this weekend.
As of right now, there are two storms attempting to make their way up north — and if successful, most northern states will see snowfall at some point over the weekend.
The first storm, however, appears to be more a slushy mess than a winter wonderland. Areas of Tennessee, Virginia, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and southeastern Massachusetts will have a mix of rain and snow, resulting in wet — and slippery — roads.
Southern states, including Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and southeastern Texas, will experience a drastic temperature dip and potential rainfall. Temperatures may drop down to 30 degrees compared to temperatures at the start of the week for these states. Yikes.
The second storm, closely following the first, is predicted to bring snow showers and potential snow accumulation to the Northeast. While this storm isn't expected to be anything major — no needed this time around! – it will dampen weekend travel plans and may be a reason for Northern folks to stay inside (or buy a new ).
recommends staying off the roads and accounting for extra travel time if you need to get out of the house. Oh, and don't forget to !
