Early Spring Snowstorm? It’s A Possibility

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Could we be in for more snow next week? It’s a possibility.

Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram breaks down the details.


All the “buzz” lately has been about the possibility of more snow next week, mainly during the Tuesday-Wednesday time frame. The surface charts on both the GFS and Euro models are still implying that there will be a low pressure system sliding by to the south and east of Baltimore on Tuesday and Tuesday night. At this point, the exact track of this area of low pressure is uncertain.



Scenario 1

If the area of low pressure takes a coastal track, riding up along the Atlantic Seaboard, significant impacts are possible. The amount of snowfall we could see would mainly be determined by the timing of the precipitation.

If the bulk of the precipitation occurs at night Tuesday with temperatures below freezing in the absence of the strong March sun angle, we would be talking about several inches of snowfall. And that would mean that we could potentially have a mess on our hands by next Wednesday morning!


Scenario 2

If the area of low pressure takes a more “out to sea” track, areas east of the I-95 corridor would be more likely to see minimal/moderate impacts. Light snow would be possible, but mainly for coastal areas.

This would be the more favorable scenario for many and would spare the mid-Atlantic of a significant, early spring snowstorm.


Temperatures will reach the upper 40s again by next Thursday.
