Sunday December 8 2019

This morning we once again start off chilly and will end seasonable. So the focus of this report will be on the next storm. Why jump ahead? Because

  1. The storm will bring an average of 1-2 inches of rain
  2. Temperatures will jump into the 60s for many
  3. Warm rain is boring in December. But the snow to follow is what ‘could’ impact you on Wednesday
  4. Wednesday will bring snow for most of our region. Some could have street  stickage, but many may just see wet roads.

Plan for active weather to start the work week as showers will develop Monday with periods of heavy rain into Tuesday. Then cold air will catch up to the end of the storm before Wednesday morning. It is likely we get snow, but will it be likely to stick? That will be the debate for a while.

This Canadian GEM Model does reflect a similar output to the European ECMAF Model in the slider below.

European Model- I’ve highlighted the freezing line indicated by the 540 DM thickness. You will see a burst of snow BEFORE the freezing line arrives. While this will occur in the dark of night, it will challenge stickage ability on the roads. This is not clear cut.

Wednesday Morning Temperatures 

Notice the freezing line will be well west and north of the cities. Snow can stick in a heavy burst when temps are above 32ºF, but it is not clear cut.


Storm Notes:

  • Most of us will see snow falling on Wednesday. 
  • The best chance to see road stickage will be west and north of the city, however snow is likely to stick on the grass in metro areas. Yes, there could be some impact for schools… in the colder places that have already seen some snow this season.
  • Water temperatures on the Chesapeake are still in the 40s. This will keep nearby areas warmer and likely get less snow.


Temperature Outlook

After the brief arctic blasts next week following the storm, the jet stream will relax. Mild weather around the 15ht, but another cold shot is expected before Christmas. There will be more chances for early snow. FITF
