Thursday Morning December 17 2020

This morning the storm has moved away, and left us with what we expected: Temperatures in the 20s and widespread icing! Regardless of how much (or how little) snow you received, the freezing air had caused many areas that were wet to ice up, and the thawing will be slow.

In this report:

  • Preliminary Snow Report
  • Interactive Map of Maryland Plows
  • Morning Temperatures and Forecast
  • Outlook to Christmas Day

Here is a quick round up of the current weather.

  • Nearby Snow Winners
    Binghamton, NY: 41” measured by NWS Office at 6:40 AM
    All time storm record! A Few locations OVER 40 INCHES!
    *I worked at WBGN for two years before my moved to Baltimore.
  • Harrisburg, PA: 9.3” broke their daily record for December 16. This was also almost double the snow for all of last season.
    Baltimore at BWI: 1.6”
    But 3”+ in the City
  • 4” to 8” in many suburbs


Preliminary Snow Map: Not The Full Storm Totals

Most of the region did verify my snow forecast, except the Over 10” locations ended just under. I will have a final snow map report and ask you to Grade My Forecast later today.
