WEATHER BLOG: Calm After The Storm

Very little snow accumulated in Baltimore Saturday afternoon before the snow changed to rain. However, just west and north of town there were reports of 1-3″, with the 3″ amounts along the Mason-Dixon Line.

Low pressure is currently off the Jersey Shore and it will quickly move northeastward Sunday morning into the afternoon. The pressure gradient will tighten as the low moves away so it will be breezy and there can be gusts around 30 mph. It does appear there will be some breaks in the clouds by late morning or early afternoon and temperatures will reach the lower 40s. The gradient weakens gradually Sunday night so winds will gradually decrease as well. It will be a cold and brisk night but not as cold as it would get if winds were light. The chilly air will remain with us into Monday but the winds will decrease later Monday as high pressure builds into the region.

The next system arrives early Tuesday. With low level warm air advection as the prime forcing mechanism, some very light snow will break out in time for the morning commute. No accumulation is expected in Baltimore at this point and any snow around will turn to some light rain with temperatures warming well above freezing.
