Monday November 12 2018

The weather this morning was frozen. Temperatures have produced widespread frost, but a disturbance also brought flurries to the suburbs north of Baltimore. This includes parts of Baltimore, Harford, and Cecil County up towards Lancaster, PA. Snow showers in western Maryland might stick on the ground. But our main event will be rain this evening into Tuesday. This will be yet another coastal storm with the heavy rain this time falling south of Baltimore.

Another storm later this will have colder air in place and could start with snow or a wintry mix Thursday afternoon. That should turn into yet another rain event, but the hint of winter will be with us. More details below….

Thursday Event: Starting As Wintry Mix?

The European Model does show a start as snow and sleet through central Maryland… but during the day. If this verifies, the ground is too warm for this to be a road issue.

GFS Model

This model now agrees on the timing of the arrival, but has any icy mix isolated to the far northern suburbs and western Maryland.
