Mondays can be a little bit hectic. The weather felt the same way, with strong winds overnight.
Now, as we settle into the week, calmer weather will be in store.
The early morning brought lows in the upper 20s. Winds stayed on the lower side. However, it was enough to bring wind chills to around 20 degrees.
The very strong low-pressure system will be well away from the area. It is a massive system, though. So, between that and the incoming high pressure to the west, it will be gusty for the morning. Expect wind gusts around 30 mph. It will not cause any issues, just a typical breezy day.
High temperatures will peak in the mid-40s for the afternoon. It will be a day with the sun poking in and out of a blanket of high clouds. If you check your phone or computer for the current conditions, you'll likely see it show a sunny sky, when that is not the case. You can read more about why here.
The winds will then really calm down Tuesday evening. Temperatures will crash through the 30s quickly. Clouds will build in, which will slow the cooling. Still, as the sun starts to peak through Wednesday morning, it will be in the low 20s just about everywhere, again below average.
We still look to be in the “Goldilocks zone” for Wednesday. A clipper system will bring snow to New England. Meanwhile, a piece of moisture will move through the Deep South.
It will cut up the coast and likely bring rain to the southern Delmarva region, but we will stay dry. Expect a damp and gray day. Highs will only be in the mid-30s, but we will hold out rain-free for another day.
Zonal flow, meaning west to east flow in the mid and upper levels, will keep the weather mild on the last day of February.
Highs will be in the upper-40s, spot on seasonable, with plenty of sun.

Then, we turn to the weekend. March looks to roar in like a lion. Between Friday and Sunday, one to two systems will be around. As of the time of writing, I believe Friday and Saturday will see precipitation. A storm system will cut across the country, with South Jersey on the northern fringe. Expect a mix of rain and snow during the morning hours. Snow accumulations, will be minor at most. Then, the sky will clear out as temperatures rise into the 40s.
Then, another storm follows in its footsteps on Saturday. However, this one will bring all rain, as it cuts from south to north. A future storm system continues to be on the horizon for the middle of next week. It likely will be of the coastal variety too. However, we're way too far out for specifics. Details will come over the week.
