BLOG: Messy Now…Clear Later
Rain is coming down at a pretty good pace in Baltimore now and looks like precip continues pretty steady and heavy into early this afternoon.
Temps have reached their high for the day already and we stay mainly in the 30s, but above freezing the rest of today. There are going to be some wet flakes mixing in Baltimore at times this afternoon and this evening, but accumulating snow will be up to our north and west.
We’ll probably pick up about an inch of rain this morning and early this afternoon before precip begins to lessen
later, and perhaps mix with some wet snow, later this afternoon before ending early this evening.
Speaking of that snow farther north and west, looks like Loudon County up into Carroll, York and Lancaster for the 3-6 inches amounts, tapering to chance of a slushy coating to perhaps an inch from PHL to just northwest of BWI and back to Dulles, then nothing farther south and east.
Behind the storm, there’s still a brisk northwest wind tonight and clouds will break up overnight. A better day tomorrow with sunshine and high pressure building in from the west. A decent day Monday with high pressure sliding off to the coast. Upper level disturbance that will be spawning another area of low pressure near the Southeast coast Monday night into Tuesday could result in some clouds for us, especially later Monday through Tuesday morning. At this point we are expecting the rain from this next coastal storm to be off to our east and models are in good agreement on that for now, but we could cover a shower in the Monday night period.
High pressure will reassert itself across our area Wednesday and Thursday, then perhaps another system Thursday night and Friday.
