Saturday January 7 – Tracking the snow this morning entering the Mid Atlantic and as clear picture is setting up for the heavy bands and the back edge. Both part of Maryland. The best way to look at this event is to compare to Friday morning’s snow. Places that got under one inch in metro Baltimore should get one inch or more today. But a fine line is setting up for the cut off on the northwest side.  A Winter Storm Warning has been expanded to Calvert County with the 3 to 6 inch snow potential… fitting my map from last night.  The only adjustment is the north end. Much of Delmarva is in for a snowy day with plenty of stickage as temps stay in the 20s. Salisbury and the beaches are still in the 6 to 12 inch range. FITF

  • All Day Event From Bay To Coast
  • Ending Early Afternoon on Edge Around Beltways/I-95

Below is the latest radar simulation, wind chill, high temps, and Final Call For Snowfall Map. I’ve highlighted where I see the steady and heavy snow with a white arrow, and the back edge of the steady snow with a yellow arrow. This is where dry air will make a sharp cut off. Virga may be seen much of the morning where snow appears on radar but the dry air eats up the flakes before they reach the ground.

Outlook: Ice Event?

This looks like a north side deal… But two things to consider with long range events that may conflict each other.

First, there has been a trend north with systems verifying. = Warmer

Second, Snowpack from today’s event will help to hold coder air in place longer. = Colder



Temperatures: Warming Next Week, But More Winter Will Follow
