Sunday January 13 2019

Good morning and happy snowy Sunday. Most of our area is waking up to already 2 to 4 inches of snow on the ground. Do you remember when I said that would be the general region-wide total? That was when most models had the system ending now. But the caveat has been that if the main storm is stronger and pulls north, then we are in for a longer event. Here we are this morning with just that and as a result, the bonus snow will add at least double that and be the overachieving event all day.

Below you will see snow simulation sliders for today and Today morning, temperatures, and additional snowfall.

Storm Warnings and Snow Advisories

Winter Storm Warnings (pink)

have been expanded. Most of central/metro areas last until 6 PM. The warning extends on the lower eastern shore and Delmarva until Monday morning. Yes, this is likely to impact schools Monday.

Winter Weather Advisories (blue) for northern Baltimore, Hartford, and Cecil in Maryland across to southern PA are where the snow is expected to end sooner today.

Reason For More Snow

Morning Storm Map

The first wave of snow is what we had overnight. There may be light snow or a lull for a few hours, but the primary Low is still heading our way. Steady snow will intensify mid day and this afternoon.

Afternoon Storm Map

The NEW Coastal Low is where we expect the additional snow to come from. As the energy is transferred to the coast, snow will fill back in. The northern edge may be near York and Lancaster, but that pus most of Maryland in the snow zone.

Southern Maryland and Lower Eastern Shore: These area may mix to rain, but will turn back to snow. Even the beaches will end with snow Monday morning.

How Much Snow So Far?

As of midnight:

  • BWI = 1.8″
  • Washington/National = 1.9″

New Partner

Shannon and I will be doing a live 4 Wheel Drive in the snow Sunday Morning

Buchanan Kia of Westminster is a supporter of Just In Power Kids and Maryland Trek 6 in August 2019. My wife and I purchased new vehicles from them, and they wanted to partner with our nonprofit.  We thought it would be fun to show you how our vehicles hold up in all weather.

Another Storm Next Week?

Yes, I am aware that the rumors are already flying. I will not discuss that until this storm is done. We have snow with us right now and a weather pattern that will get even colder. The only outlook I want to mention now are temperatures. Take at look at that DIVE after next weekend. There will be a lot of talk about the Polar Vortex on the way.
