Thursday January 31 2019

The core of the cold air is with us today, with hardly a cloud in the sky. Before the quick warm up can get here, there is one more piece of energy that will swing our way with snow on Friday. As it appears now, it will develop in the morning and be cold enough for stickage all day. The ground is surely frozen to support that.


Winter Weather Advisory (Updated)


Snow Notes

This may start around the morning commute in central Maryland, but by mid day and early afternoon, this will be more of an issue north of Baltimore. The final piece will push through and redevelop some snow on the lower Delmarva just in time for sunset and Friday evening towards the beaches.

Snow Timelines

This looks worse than it may be. Steady light snow lasts longer on the north side. Two sliders below for the morning, and the afternoon.  Only Light accumulation. See the snow totals below.


Morning—> slider 

This will develop over central Maryland during the morning commute.

Afternoon—> slider 

By lunch time, most of the snow will be north of Baltimore. Then redevelop over the Eastern Shore and lower Delmarva/Beches by evening.

Snow Total: Not Much

Again, just enough to coat the ground and possible be a nuisance.

The Jet Stream will lift the Polar Vortex to our north and the return of very warm air next week could bring us to near 60ºF. Then another arctic blast arrive by Valentine’s Day.
