Friday March 6 2020
A storm is developing and trying to phase. That is when two pieces join forces for a larger and stronger system. We will be on the very edge of this as it does its thing off of the coast. The result will be rain today, then snow mixing in and spreading southward across Maryland tonight.
Temperatures should be too warm for stickage, with the exception of some grass areas north of Baltimore and into southern Pennsylvania early Saturday.
What will follow will be a windy Saturday, then temps jump close to 70ºF by Monday.
Note: Clocks turn forward to Daylight Saving Sunday morning. Sunset will be pushed into the 7 PM hour.

Storm Animation 7 AM Friday to 7 AM Saturday
See the slider timeline plots below.
This storm will intensify quickly, but just far enough off the coast to clip but not hit us hard.
Simulations: Below are two sliders to compare the radar for rain and snow every two hours, to the temperatures (every 6 hours)
Rain and Snow Timeline
- Notice the spread of the rain to the north the morning.
- Some snowflakes may mix it across the northern suburbs today. No stickage.
- The back edge will be west of the Bay, with showers developing this afternoon.
- Snow will drop to the south tonight.
Northern Baltimore suburbs could get a coating of snow, and with temps below freezing Saturday morning might have some like spots.
The snow winners will be:
- Western Maryland’s Wisp: 2 to 4 inches
- Snowshow, WV: 6 to 10 inches
Windy and cold
After a chilly start to the weekend, temps will jump to nearly 70ºF by Monday. This has nothing to do with the clock change but will definitely make it feel like spring!
