BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The storm that only dealt Baltimore a “glancing blow” on Tuesday with some snow in the afternoon really “cranked itself up” off the coast of New England Wednesday, bringing more than two feet of snow and hurricane-force wind gusts to parts of New England.
It will still be rather windy across the mid-Atlantic states Thursday as that powerful storm moves away from Nova Scotia, that will take most temperatures in the upper-20s and lower-30s and make them “Feel Like” they’re in the teens in the afternoon. Cold and dry weather will prevail Thursday night and Friday with less wind.
The temperature should wind up in the mid or upper-30s on Saturday, because there’ll be a relatively modest temperature rise occurring with west to southwest winds blowing out ahead of our approaching “clipper.”
It should be mentioned that there may be a snow shower or at least some flurries around here late in the day, or perhaps early on Saturday night — as this “clipper” glides across the eastern Lakes and into northern New England on Sunday morning.
Sunday and most of Monday (the observance of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday) should be dry, but we are concerned that Monday turns out cloudy as some milder air aloft starts to press northward, and there could be a little snow, or a wintry mix of snow and ice occurring Monday night and early Tuesday.
