Thursday December 8 – A disturbance is moving through ahead of the arctic air. There is a band of flurries and sprinkles this morning, but warmer air will build from a frosty start as rain will crass southern Maryland. Then temps will crash tonight. This will set the stage for a very cold Friday and chance of snow to end the weekend into Monday. I touched on this systems in my prior post, and will have more later today. The GFS Model forecast still has light snow near and north of Baltimore and what could be interesting is the chance of snow for the Ravens Monday night game against the Patriots.

End Of Weekend Event

I will have more on this later today, but the GFS Model still showing two pieces. Sunday light snow or flurries. Then Monday morning a light snow or icy mix changing to rain locally. The system could bring snow or and icy mix Monday nigh to eastern New England for the Ravens game against the Patriots.

This GEFS Ensemble shows a warm up early next week, but that is all based on the storm track and subject to change. The next surge of arctic air to follow will be even colder
