Freezing Rain Sunday, Frigid Temperatures For Early Next Week
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — First, it was snow. Then, it was the bone chilling temperatures. Now, Maryland is bracing for even more and even worse cold temperatures.
Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram has more.
The ice storm warning has been extended until midnight Sunday night for Frederick and Washington counties but is expected to expire around 9 p.m. for Carroll County.
Ice accumulations up to one-quarter of an inch can be expected with periods of freezing rain and drizzle.
An Arctic cold front will push near the region overnight.
Rain showers can be expected, along with widespread fog through Monday morning. As the colder air works its way into the region, snow could mix in with any residual precipitation.
The Arctic cold front should be positioned along the I-95 corridor by Monday morning and will blast through the area by Monday afternoon, bringing some of the coldest air we have seen in decades.
Highs on Tuesday will only reach into the lower teens and perhaps single digits for spots north and west of the city.
Overnight lows will plummet again into the single digits both Monday night and Tuesday night while wind chills make it feel 10-15 degrees below zero!
Thursday will be a much nicer day, sunny and 40. Friday will be even better, with a high of 48 degrees.
