WEATHER BLOG: Snowfall Recap
Well, the most recent storm is now behind us. For many of the mid-Atlantic states, especially Maryland, Delaware and northern Va., Tuesday marked our second disruptive snowfall in just three days. By mid-day, most of the snowfall that fell in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor had already melted by the time I did my live shots with the WJZ Mobile Weather Lab at 4, 5 & 6 p.m. Some totals were rather impressive but not as impressive as what we saw on Sunday. Please e-mail, or Tweet your snowfall pictures to me from Tuesday’s storm. E-mail: Cingram@wjz.com Twitter: @ChelseaWJZ
Here’s a look at some of the pictures you sent in Tuesday:
Here’s a look at some of Tuesday’s snowfall totals:
After a very chilly night and morning where temps were holding steady below freezing, most of the primary highways were in great shape but there were still a few slick spots out there on secondary roadways, driveways, sidewalks, bridges and overpasses as a consequence of Tuesday’s melted snow. High pressure comes fully into control Wednesday, bringing us mostly sunny skies. But the sunshine won’t help to warm us up very much as highs will only reach into the mid 30s Wednesday afternoon. We will continue this unseasonably cold trend as as an even chillier push of cold, Canadian air will arrive in your neighborhood Thursday. Highs Thursday will struggle to make it out of the upper 20s for most of the suburbs and perhaps even the city.
For those of you who are anxious and just can’t wait for the next opportunity for snow, you won’t have to wait too long, particularly if you live north and west of the city. An area of low pressure will hop a ride aboard the jetstream, reaching the eastern seaboard by the weekend. So far highs are forecast to reach into the mid/upper 30s on Saturday so we could see a rain/snow mix but that is more likely for areas north and west of Baltimore and along the Mason-Dixon into western Maryland. We will fine-tune the forecast as the weekend draws closer.
