BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — A snow storm has moved of the Mid-Atlantic region, but officials say frigid temperatures are expected to linger for several days.
Several areas of southern Maryland and the eastern shore got up to a foot of snow.
Meteorologist Kevin Witt with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Virginia said parts of southern Maryland such as St. Mary’s County and Calvert County got between 5 and 7 inches of snow on Saturday. Witt says Baltimore saw about an inch of snow while some of the areas around Washington got only about a half inch.
The National Weather Service reports that nearly 10 inches of snow were reported in southern Delaware while Dover saw 3.5 inches.
The snow is expected to stick around for a while. Witt says high temperatures will be in the upper 20s and low 30s, with lows dipping into the teens and possibly single digits at night in some parts.
Meteorologist Chelsea Ingram says a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for western Maryland, with wind chills from -15 to -20 through Sunday afternoon.
“High-pressure building in, providing the area with mostly clear skies overnight Saturday. Sunshine is in store heading into Sunday, but that sunshine isn’t going to help warm up the area. The area will only be seeing highs in the mid-20s, and then factoring in the wind, temperatures will feel more like the single digits and teens for most of Sunday,” says Chelsea.
