A cold front has brought an abrupt change in weather for millions of Americans who experienced record warmth this week. On Thursday, many of them were greeted in the morning with colder, rainier weather.

Washington, D.C., saw 82 degrees Fahrenheit and sun on Wednesday, the warmest it’s been this early in the year on record. But temperatures came down to the mid-50s on Thursday with occasional bouts of rain expected.

It’s a similar story up and down the eastern seaboard. Meteorologist Paul Dorian said cities from Philadelphia to New York City will see temperatures in the 40s with occasional drizzle.


After record warmth across Massachusetts, including near-record highs in Boston, Bay State temperatures have fallen into the 40s and snow is expected to start falling Thursday evening.

East Coast temperatures are expected to rise by the weekend. Northeasterners can expect daily temperatures in the 40s and 50s on Saturday, while the U.S. Southeast will be warmer in the high-60s and 70s.
