While the week has started on a dry and mild foot across the eastern U.S., a change is coming to the region in the form of rain, snow, and fluctuating temperatures. Here is what you need to know about the storm in the Northeast forecast for this corner of the country.

New Storm System Gearing Up to Impact Central and Eastern U.S.

Enjoy the warmup across the central and eastern U.S. while you can. The next major weather maker is waiting in the wings ready to bring a mix of precipitation and colder temperatures. This change will be a continuation of the rapidly fluctuating weather patterns that the region has endured over the last several weeks.

After spending much of the weekend with highs in the 30s, the area will see temperatures climb back into the 40s and the 50s by the middle of the week. Dry conditions will help to make this a relatively tame weather pattern for the middle of February. For example, this New York City February weather will enjoy a high of 50 degrees by Friday before the next cooldown arrives.

Readings in this range will melt off the remaining snow still on the ground from the weekend winter storm. However, forecasters are warning that cold temperatures that fall below freezing overnight across the Great Lakes, New England, Ohio Valley, and northern tier of the mid-Atlantic could translate to icy patches if puddles freeze over at night.

The middle of the week will provide a good stretch of weather for those residents in the mid-Atlantic and up through the Ohio Valley to get outside and do yard work, go for a run, and more. Cincinnati will see readings soar into the low 60s on Wednesday under mostly sunny skies.
