BLOG: Midday Update To Snow Event
No changes have been made to the forecast. Snow continues to creep northward, as a clipper system races eastward along the VA/NC border. Snow fall amounts range from 1-3 inches across the region with, about an inch accumulating downtown.
The evening commute will be a bit slippery as the snow is winding down between 4-7 p.m. There will only be a lingering snow shower early this evening (after 7 p.m.) as this clipper system quickly races eastward, taking the precipitation with it.
The latest wave of low pressure that is destined to slide out of the Tennessee Valley and eventually cruise through the Carolinas this afternoon/evening is going to spread a swath of snow into your area today.
At this juncture, it appears from early afternoon on, the snow will probably come down hard enough to leave
behind some accumulation by late this afternoon. The snow accumulations will vary from north (least) to south (most) during the afternoon and early evening hours, with Baltimore probably getting close to an inch — or just enough to cause a nuisance for the drive home late this afternoon/early tonight.
There is no change to thinking about this weekend’s potential storm. While it is still possible there is a storm, the most likely scenario is that this storm moves out to sea. The idea of snow this weekend is on “life-support”, and could be removed from the forecast depending on model runs.
