WEATHER BLOG: March Madness
We’re expecting some sunshine Friday across the Greater Baltimore Area, but there will also be a brisk northwest wind that will average 12-25 mph with some higher gusts. So, it’ll feel like it’s in the 30s most of the day, even despite some sunshine. Temps reflect a January (not March) high.
The weather will be dry around here for approximately 72 hours before we may be dealing with “the next storm” to emerge in the East. But, there still are some questions at this time — not only about what precipitation type there is, but even if the moisture spreading out across the East will be distributed in areas just a bit too far to our south.
If that were to be the case, then there may be a few periods of snow on Sunday night into Monday. The intensity of the precipitation at this time of year and what time of day it is occurring are critical factors in determining how much snow there can be.
So, it is possible that some folks could be waking up to a slushy, sloppy mess on Monday. But, because there hasn’t been much of a consensus reached yet within the various models, it is best that we only speculate about it at this point.
It is certainly way too soon to be inserting snowfall accumulation numbers, if these are indeed applicable. But, the odds seem to favor that Monday will, at the very least, be chilly with most temperatures no higher than 40 or so.
It will remain chilly on Tuesday with some sunshine, and then temperatures may climb to levels near 50 by the middle of next week…finally.
Have a good weekend!
