Thursday December 14

This active weather pattern has one more burst of snow up its sleeve. This one will be an upper level feature or jet streak that develops over the areas on Friday. Considering the light snow Wednesday evening that led to numerous school delays this morning… and we are talking about Maryland after all, we need to pay attention to the small events.

Satellite: Water Vapor Loop

Active south branch of the jet stream is what is going try to lift back north. At this time it looks like light snow will try to break out on the southern half of our area. This is something that will evolve overhead and be tough to track on the move in until we see it show up on radar.

Light snow or flurries will develop around mid day. This will begin in central Virginia and stretch across metro Washington and Baltimore. But most of the action will be south of I-95 into the afternoon, then shift to the Eastern Shore/ Delmarva for the evening. The air temperatures will be flirting with freezing but the daytime sun angle will help roads.

However, should you be in a spot with steady light snow after 4PM, then we could have some road issues into the evening. That includes a rough reference south of The Bay Bridge.
