Maryland Braces For Potential Snow On Tuesday
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Could we be in for more snow next week? It’s a possibility.
Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram breaks down the details.
A “powerhouse” storm system is forecast to develop off of the East Coast Tuesday and Wednesday bringing areas from the mid-Atlantic into the Northeast one more round of snow. Although confidence has increased with regards to the storm’s intensity and track, we have to emphasize that nothing is set in stone just yet. The storm is currently forecast to be far enough off the coast bringing only minor impacts to us here in Maryland.
The storm will intensify Tuesday and Tuesday night off the southeastern U.S. coast as disturbances from the Midwest and moisture from the Gulf of Mexico interact and “phase” together. The storm is then forecast to track northeastward. Light snow may arrive Tuesday morning and then continue periodically into Tuesday evening before tapering off. We could see accumulations anywhere from 1-3″ with a worst-case scenario of up to 4″ in spots, especially on unpaved and grassy surfaces. Accumulations can be limited during the daytime hours with temperatures above freezing and the higher sun angle during the month of March.
Much heavier snow, potentially up to a foot is expected from southeast New England through eastern Maine and into Atlantic Canada as the storm continues to strengthen into Wednesday.
Temperatures will be back in the 60s by Friday and Saturday!
