Here is another week and yet another possible winter storm coming our way.
Currently mostly cloudy and chilly conditions prevail as a weak zone of high pressure moves east of the Northeast Seaboard.
A glance at Saturday morning shows a broad area of high pressure, extending from the Ohio Valley eastward into southern New England.
Breezes from the south and southwest are directly milder air across the Northeast Seaboard early this morning with temperatures ranging from the upper 20s in the coldest spots to around 35 in the warmest places.
Looks like a lot of interesting and active weather coming up for at least the next week with a few storm systems to affect the area.
The same general jet stream pattern will persist across North America for much of the upcoming week, with a very pronounced ridge of high pressure along the West Coast extending into Alaska and a downstream trough extending from central Canada into the Eastern U.S.
We have been in the deep freeze the last several days, but we have had some “warming” with temperatures inching upward with a south to southwest breeze/wind at times coming in ahead of the cold front.
We can’t begin to measure the accumulations in part because of the very strong wind blowing on the Eastern Shore. Plows have been coming through every few minutes. Road conditions have still deteriorated. The big problem they’re dealing with is the wind. It has caused warnings on the Bay Bridge and is blowing the snow all around.
Winter weather is in Maryland again! Most of Maryland is under a Winter Storm Warning.
Snow and icy cold temperatures are coming to Maryland. A Winter Storm Warning will go into effect for most of the state Tuesday. Crews are already getting a head start, pre-treating roads and salting.
Alberta Clipper tracking eastward across western PA is weakening as supporting upper level trough weakens and opens up so we are not expecting much in the way of precipitation in Baltimore.
Sunday will turn out more tranquil than Saturday, certainly the “better day” of the weekend.
