The weather situation will be deteriorating, with Thursday night and Friday morning providing us with some major problems.

The rapid intensification of a coastal storm is going to cause some much colder air to get pulled down from the north and west late Friday afternoon and especially Friday night, which will change any spotty light rain to snow after 6 or 7 p.m. It will taper off early Friday morning, but it will last long enough to bring us a general 1-3 inches, with some locally higher amounts north and east of Baltimore. To the south, there may be no more than a coating to an inch. However, with the rapidly falling temperatures, everybody will experience slick travel conditions — if for no other reason, there should be a thin layer of ice developing late Friday, which will be covered up by some accumulating snow after 8 or 9 p.m.

Friday morning’s commute could be very nasty, but even if road crews can clean up after this mess, Friday it will “feel like” it’s no higher than the teens in the afternoon. Sun will be returning, but there will be a bitterly cold blast of air.
