Monday January 28 2019

Today is the quiet day ahead of the big change. The arctic blast is on the way and each new model run seems to add a little more snow, and spread out the problems. The normally colder northern zones may have some snow and ice Tuesday morning and more accumulation as a result. Baltimore will be on the edge of this. Then we watch the push of arctic air during the afternoon to spread through metro areas and the Eastern Shore.

Here is a quick look at this morning’s info. I will have a more detailed snow forecast mid day

Quick Notes

Teachers, parents, and school administrators: I think there there are a few things to consider here for weather delays…

  • Tuesday Morning: Northern Counties might have road problems. See the timeline below.
  • Metro Areas (Inner Harbor, Annapolis, Washington) see the impact begin between 2 and 5 PM
  • Tuesday Evening: Most area activities may need to be cancelled as this is when most snow and falling temps will occur.
  • Wednesday Morning: Regardless of how much snow accumulates, many areas will have wind chills well below zero.

How Much Snow?

I will have a more detailed look at this in my next report.

Northern areas will get more when including morning snow potential. Most areas should get a minimum of 1 to 2 inches.

 

Important Notes: 

  • There will be flash freeze as snow will be falling while the temperatures drop quickly through the 20s. Anything wet on the roads will ice up quickly.
  • Wednesday morning will be deep in the freeze with most areas in the wind chill ranges below zero.

Note how quickly temps drop into the 20s and teens. This is the flash freeze concern.

 

Wednesday Morning: Temps Compared To ‘Normal’

Wednesday Morning Wind Chill

This will be on the dangerous side. So if you are wondering about school delays, even if the roads are fully cleared, I expect many school systems will consider these wind chills to limit kids waiting at the bust stop.
