This is a tough pill to swallow for snow lovers. The coldest air of the season (so far) just came in after bringing mostly rain. The snow on Saturday afternoon was a tease that washed away quickly. The wind chills below zero were another tease of another sort. I hear many people saying, “What a waste of cold air”! This next storm will be on yet another track to our west, bringing in warmer air, just for the event, only to be followed by a cool down. This time the boundary may bring some rumbles of thunder Thursday morning.
There is hope. Winter folklore continues to suggest (and prove) that if in winter there is thunder, snow will follow in a week or under. The long range patter supports more cold air and we can still get our big snow. Hang tight, and get past this one.
The Storm Set Up
Low Pressure near Kansas City will track towards Michigan. That will bring the warm side our way. So the arctic air in place is not he way out.
It will be cold, but seasonable. Definitely not like the past two morning. You will feel a difference and just wait until you see Thursday morning.
Only some slight showers might develop. There could be enough cold air for some sleet, but I don’t see a big deal
Most of central Maryland to southern PA will reach the lower 40s… and continue to warm through morning.
Rain Developing. The main event will be in the mountains and head our way for the morning.

There may be some thunder as that strong line of storms rolls through in the morning.

Winter is still here and has more to give us. Our luck is likely to change. FITF
We will be dominated by cold air (blue) pattens into February. There will be plenty of supply, but like above, no guarantee of storms at this time. I expect it will be active and worth watching for our winter prime time show.
