BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The remnants of the first snow of 2019 are still on the ground, the focus turns to the possibility of more winter weather.
There are actually TWO chances of more wintry mix –but mostly rain — this week, starting Thursday evening.
WJZ’s Weather Team is tracking both systems that are eyeing Maryland.
WJZ’s Bob Turk said the worst case scenario is an inch of snow in Baltimore and communities north and west, with some wintry mix or rain in communities south and east of the city Thursday night into Friday morning.
It’s possible Friday morning’s commute could be impacted by wintry precipitation briefly before it warms up.
Friday’s temperatures will be back up in the 40s.
But then this weekend another dynamic system will be headed toward the East Coast for the weekend.
The second system will arrive on Saturday during the second half of the day, WJZ’s Meg McNamara said.
The wintry weather will continue through Saturday night into Sunday morning — and maybe beyond that.
Most likely it’ll start as a wintry mix, turn to rain overnight and then go back to a wintry mix before stopping Sunday.
The biggest concern is that temperatures are expected to drop significantly Sunday night, freezing any precipitation on the ground.
The good news? Monday is already a holiday for schools and most employers as it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The weather team will continue to track the models to determine a timeline for Maryland.
