BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Areas from the mid-Atlantic into the Northeast are in for one more round of snow Tuesday as a “powerhouse storm” develops off of the East Coast.
Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram breaks down the details.
I said this earlier during our noon show and I’ll say it again…I love forecasting snow, but not when it’s almost April! A storm system that will be gaining momentum Tuesday off the East Coasts looks as if it will be delivering Maryland a “glancing blow,” with snow arriving Tuesday morning and then becoming intermittent by the afternoon before tapering off Tuesday evening.
We expect accumulations to range anywhere from 1-3″ across the viewing area with a worst-case scenario of up to 4″ in spots. Much of the snowfall is forecast to fall during the daytime hours. This is good news for us because accumulations will be more likely to occur on grassy and unpaved surfaces rather than roadways due to the high March sun angle and road temperatures above freezing. Maryland will easily miss the worst of the storm as the area of low pressure is forecast to be far enough off the coast to bring only minor impacts. Parts of the New England coastline may see upwards of 1 foot of snowfall accumulation with winds gusting up to 55 mph! Atlantic Canada will get hit the worst as the storm is forecast to dump anywhere from 12-18″ in places like Nova Scotia!
After The Storm:
As the area of low pressure pulls away, turning into a “powerhouse storm,” strong northwest winds are expected to develop Tuesday night into Wednesday sustained at 10-20 mph and gusting even higher!
