SJV Weather for February 13-19, 2019
An area of low pressure near the Great Lakes will lift into Québec Wednesday while a low will move along coastal Maine today and into New Brunswick this evening. Snow is expected across the region Wednesday morning into the afternoon followed by snow showers overnight as an upper-low from Québec moves across the Valley. High pressure centered south of the Chesapeake Bay will build across the region Thursday with partly cloudy skies across the region by evening. Clouds thicken after midnight Thursday as an area of low pressure tracks from Wisconsin/Michigan into Canada pulling a cold front towards the SJV with some additional snowfall for the region. High pressure will build into the region later Saturday bringing partly cloudy skies to the Valley through Tuesday.
