Cold and dreary weather had, for the most part, taken control of the areas weather over the past several days. Much of this can be blamed on the development of an upper level low over the Southeast United States last week. This upper level low drifted northeastwards towards the Mid Atlantic coast earlier this week, aiding in the development of a low pressure system which enhanced precipitation across much of the area.
The slow-moving cutoff low, which refers to systems that are detached from the overall jet stream, meandered in the region through this morning while slowly drifting off to the north and east. Residual moisture allowed for fog and drizzle to remain in the area. The good news is that, at long last, the system is departing and pleasant weather will finally return to the forecast.
