December 1 2020

Meteorological Winter begins today and the weather has cooperated.  Heavy snow with accumulation is in the mountains, and we have a streaming web cam below. Locally Doppler Radar has indicated that rain has mixed with snow north of I-70 in Maryland.  If you see the flakes they likely will not stick, but more are possible later today and tomorrow as it gets colder.

Morning Doppler Radar

Have you seen snowflakes yet?

Winter mode indicates snow flakes are falling in southern PA and northern Frederick, Carroll, and Baltimore County.  If you are not seeing flakes in the region, colder air will be expanding with the precipitation for the next few hours.

There could be more flakes spreading south with this band. Some stickage on the grass for elevations over 1,000 Ft, but non on local roads expected.
