While Friday will be cold and dry, we are awaiting our next round of precipitation Saturday.
Temperatures should be near freezing when everything starts Saturday morning, so a period of snow and sleet for a couple of hours will probably make roads and sidewalks slick, leaving behind a small accumulation. However, temperatures in the afternoon are still expected to climb into the mid and upper 30s, and all forms of precipitation should change over to rain by 3 p.m. in and around Baltimore. With that in mind, nearly all of the snow and ice will be getting washed away in a hurry.
The storm’s departure will cause the wind to start picking up, and most temperatures should peak in the mid or upper 30s on Sunday afternoon. Colder air is then expected to arrive on Monday, but will become modified quickly on Tuesday. The pattern has been “active,” no doubt — and temperatures will remain below the seasonal averages for the next few days.
