November 15 2018

We are not completely done with the storm yet, but most of the snow has done its thing.  There still may be an additional inch or so overnight west and north of Baltimore. Yes, this was an overachiever! But if you saw all of my reports, then hopefully you saw my upgraded snow maps.  Here is a look at the local snow reports plotted against my final call for snowfall map. The list of snow spotter reports is below.

I want to than Jared Scott for helping to put this together as we are working on a much larger project. Please let me know if you like the layout and interactivity. We hope to be able to allow for public uploading of snow totals and conditions in real time to help in future events.

Record Snow for November 15

BWI = 1.7″ of snow

That was the report from Baltimore as of 1 PM.

The breaks the record of 1.2″ set on the date in 1908. That was 110 years years ago!!! That was part of a larger two day storm that brought 4.8″ between Nov 14-15, 1908.

 

If you saw my new FITF hat, now is the time to get yours. We had a lot of interest today and I know you will love it.

 

Snow Reports and Interactive Map

Use the controls to zoom in and see the reports by your place. Please scroll below for the full snow spotter report list.

Note: These are from NWS Baltimore/Washington. The reports from PA and Delmarva are from other regional offices. We will work to include them.

Grade My Forecast
For the record, the impact on the roads was more intense in central Maryland. It was a good thing that many schools closed. But the impact around Baltimore City and northern Anne Arundel County was much more than I expected.  I grade myself overall a C for that area but a B for the entire region. I hope you were prepared for the early season snow event.
