WEATHER BLOG: Slight Relief Before The Next Storm
This will be a very cold day, especially considering the typical high on the last day of February in Baltimore should be around 50.
Friday’s highs will be mostly in the mid and upper 20s, but at least those strong wind gusts we encountered late Thursday have died out.
The leading edge of slightly milder and moist air is going to cause light snow well to our north late Friday night and Saturday morning, but there will probably not be any snow or flurries early Saturday in Central Maryland.
So we’ll just benefit from some relief from the arctic chill Saturday. Highs will probably be in the lower or even middle 40s .
This time of year, even a little sunshine can make quite a difference!
At some point late Sunday night or first thing Monday, the temperature will drop below freezing, changing rain over to freezing rain. It looks like there can be an extended period of freezing rain and sleet during the day Monday before the cold air gets deep enough to support snow.
So where there may be some accumulation of snow at the end of the storm, the main concern is going to be ice (after midnight and through mid morning).
