Friday April 16 2021

 A spring snowstorm is hitting New England today. Some of the mountains will receive over 6 inches off snow with flakes flying near Boston. 

But there have been snow showers even closer in central Pennsylvania and western Maryland.  This is all wrapping around a strong Low Pressure, and some showers could reach us today.  The cold pattern will remain with us into the weekend.

Morning Surface Weather

Low Pressure off of the New England coast is responsible for the snow showers being pulled off of the Great Lakes.  It is possible some showers reach northeastern Maryland with rain, but some mixed flakes this morning.

Doppler Radar

The more impressive snow band has been into north central Pennsylvania. The upper level winds are pulling this southward and it may reach northeast Maryland (Harford/Cecil) and northern Delaware this morning with showers (rain/snow mix).

Western Maryland Snow Cams

There have been snow showers in Garrett County, but the Live cam shows it did not amount to much over McHenry and Wisp. 

This webcam is positioned at The Greene Turtle Deep Creek Lake and shows Wisp Resort, including a zoomed-in view of Squirrel Cage, The Face, the terrain park, Boulder, the mountain coaster, the tubing park and a shot of McHenry Cove at Deep Creek Lake!

Forecast Snapshot

We will be stuck in a chilly pattern, but the wind and more clouds will lower the risk of frost (this time).

Saturday Temperatures 

More clouds and brisk winds should keep temps from getting into frost territory in the morning. The afternoon will be a struggle to reach to 50s in northern zones.  

If you are going to the boat show, it will chilly!

Sunshine Sate Of Mind

I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.

This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.

Double Benefit: Proceeds will be split between our nonprofit Just In Power Kids and the development of my new weather website. That has been scheduled to be ready to launch in May.
