A man was arrested outside the Towson Safeway after he jumped into WJZ’s Mobile Weather Lab.
The focus for the heaviest snow is across the Baltimore metro area for late tonight into tomorrow. This is the area with the longest duration snow.
A winter storm watch will be in effect for later Wednesday night through the day on Thursday for almost all of Maryland!
Another very chilly night for this time of the year is on tap. The record low for tomorrow is 5 above, set back in 1934.
Another winter weather event has ended, and luckily, most of the region survived this one very well!
Clouds broke across the region this afternoon, allowing temperatures to rise well into the 40s. We will have some snow melt and we will have to watch for some ponding on area roadways.
Looks like a general 6-10″ of snow fell from this major winter storm, and it has now changed to freezing rain in the city and plain rain for areas to our south.
Yes, we might break another low temperature record tonight before clouds, and yes, snow arrives tomorrow.
Record cold is expected overnight as we may dip to zero in many areas. If winds really drop off and the skies clear, we could see some areas going several degrees below zero with the snow on the ground.
Brutal cold has invaded the mid-Atlantic. This morning, we tied our record low temperature of 6 degrees set back in 1943, and today’s high only made it to 18 officially at BWI.
Hard work paying off. Baltimore area students compete in WJZ’s Black History Month Oratory Competition, with one student taking top honors.
A bad night out there for anyone walking or even driving in some locations, as we have many areas that are now below freezing and have freezing rain and sleet around.
