BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A bit of snow could fall overnight into Tuesday morning, and that could affect the Tuesday commute.
WJZ’s Bob Turk says central Maryland could see a trace of snow up to an inch.
“We may end up with very little snow at all. I do think we’ll see at least some snow shower activity during the morning,” WJZ’s Bob Turk says.
A little more is expected the further north you go, and none is expected on the Eastern Shore.
A Code Blue Alert has been issued for Baltimore beginning Tuesday night through Wednesday morning as temperatures are expected to dip into the low 20s with wind chill. This will be the 19th Code Blue day this season.
“As we move into the heart of the winter season, it is important for us to remember that hypothermia, or low body temperature, can be just as dangerous as extreme heat, and every year, there are Baltimoreans who die due to hypothermia,” said Baltimore City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen. “I encourage residents to stay indoors in heated areas during these periods. Please help those around you who are the most vulnerable to the cold, including children, the elderly, and people with chronic medical illnesses.”
Code Blue is a multi-agency effort to reduce hypothermia deaths this winter by protecting vulnerable populations from extreme cold weather.
Last winter, 12 people died from hypothermia in Baltimore City. So far this winter, there have been 12 hypothermia-related deaths.
The area could see winter weather impact another morning commute this week, Thursday night into Friday morning.
The WJZ weather team is keeping an eye out on that, as well.
