February 8- The radar this evening looks like a scattered mess and temperatures are still warm. AS I’ve been saying for a few days, this will be a snow developing right on top of us. Tonight is the night! You might be questioning the Winter Storm Warning, but this is the time to rely on the physics of the atmosphere. This may also be the time for kids and teachers to turn your PJ inside out, get a spoon under your pillow, flush some ice cubes (about 1/2 dozen), set chalk or white crayon on the window, and do your snow dance. There is a good chance for school impact near Baltimore and into southern Pennsylvania. If you are in Anne Arundel Count or Washington, I think you have a 50% chance. Good luck.
I’ve included the final snow maps from the regional National Weather Service Offices below to compare to my final call for snowfall. First, here’s the HRRR Model timeline showing the overnight change and what the morning should reveal. Please see my notes and final snow maps below.
