Wednesday February 6 2019
It might be hard to imagine after reaching 71ºF in Baltimore yesterday, but winter is still here. A cold front has dropped south and will be stalling over our region for a few days. This has brought a chill back in the air today and will bring rain showers by this evening. Showers we linger through Friday, but the big shock might be the return of snow next week. However history has proven in recent years but all through the record books that big winter warm up is often followed by snow within a week or two.

Showers in the mountains will spread east today. Northern counties may get some rain this afternoon. Most metro areas turn wet tonight.
The bulk of the rain will be tonight, but showers will linger through Friday.
Snow Next Week:
Snow is showing up early next week on many models. But, the timing is not agreed upon. I have seen this many times, where the physics support ‘something’ but when is still uncertain. That is why I am showing two models with snow a day apart. I would expect to see snow in the range between Monday and Wednesday. There is support that it will be longer event, that could mix with ice.
The European Model shows snow developing Monday and lasting into Tuesday then dancing to freezing rain into Wednesday.
The FV3- GFS is a day later
This shows snow developing Tuesday into Wednesday with the change over to freezing rain

The European Model shows highs above freezing Monday and Tuesday, but look at the lows. I see snow and remaining below freezing most of Monday into most of Tuesday… then the attempt of warmer air to move in later Tuesday into Wednesday.
Note: It is too early to lock into specifics. This is just an idea and a gauge to compare any model trends against. We have a benchmark to work from.
