A pretty decent area of snow has managed to coat the Greater Baltimore Area during the night. Some places have seen more snow than others, and having followed this on the regional radar mosaic all night long, it appears that those places which got MORE THAN AN INCH included portions of southern Maryland (St. Mary’s, Calvert and Charles counties in particular). However, one thing that ALL PORTIONS of the WJZ-TV viewing area have in common: any untreated
surfaces can be slick for a while in the morning, even if they are only coated with snow.
Bitterly cold air continues to dominate the Eastern weather scene early, and most temperatures will be no higher than the mid 20s Thursday afternoon. And, as the primary area of steady now exits the mid Atlantic region Thursday morning (via Maryland’s Eastern Shore and southern Delaware), clouds should break for some sun in the wake of the disturbance that caused our snow overnight. Winds should also pick up a bit Thursday afternoon.
WE WILL BE DOING THIS ALL OVER AGAIN Friday!!! As a low pressure system moves rapidly across the East before it reaches the Atlantic Ocean Friday night and it starts to intensify rapidly, there should be a period of snow Friday afternoon and Friday evening that will deposit a fresh coating to an inch or two.
It will stay quite chilly over the weekend, but temperatures should moderate quite a bit early next week.
Have a good day!!!
