Winter is back and it will be impacting Maryland with cold temperature and a few chances for intermittent snowfall in the near-term. An upper-level disturbance will move out of the Midwest and into the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast on Tuesday. Temps in the lower levels will be borderline and we could see both rain and snow. The best chance for precip will be mid-morning through mid to late afternoon. Accumulation is not expected and paved surfaces will likely be wet.
A strong upper-level shortwave will move into the Great Lakes Tuesday night. Low pressure at the surface will develop off the coast of N.C. late Tuesday and move northeastward during the day Wednesday. We could see the first flakes fall in time for the morning commute on Wednesday with periods of snow through midday or early afternoon. This will not be a major event for us and it’s hard to see accumulations exceeding 2 inches.
