BRRRR: Snow Over, But Cold Temps Are Sticking Around
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Winter weather slammed Maryland Tuesday, but even though the snow is over, we’re not out of the woods yet. The frigid temperatures are sticking around for a while.
Bob Turk has more.
Here’s a breakdown:
Even though the snow is over, blowing and drifting snow will be a problem because of the wind Wednesday. Wednesday will see the return of the polar vortex, with temperatures only reaching a high of 16 and a low of 5. The wind chill will make it feel much colder, though. It will feel like it’s below zero for most of the day.
These are the snowfall totals in the region:
- White Marsh-8.8″
- Bel Air-9.6″
Wednesday is expected to have a high of 16 and a low of 5. The wind chill will make it feel like it’s below zero.
Traveling may be dangerous Wednesday. Roads could be snow-covered and slippery. Even though the snow has stopped, anything left on the ground could blow into the road because of the wind.
In addition, with the very cold air coming in, the road treatments will be less effective. Anything left on the road may freeze.
It is expected to stay cold. On Thursday, the high will be 22 degrees and the low will be 9. There is a chance for some flurries Thursday morning. Friday will be mostly sunny with a high of 20 degrees. Saturday will be the nicest day at 35. Still, though, it will be in the low 30s until at least the middle of next week. The normal high for this time of year is 41 degrees.
