Thursday February 14 2019
Happy Valentines Day. You may love that it is not snowing. You may love that temps could warm to 60 degrees tomorrow. Or, you may love that snow on the way this weekend will reach southern Maryland. But I doubt many can find the love for a potential ice storm next week. There is a lot to discuss but here is a quick break down, with maps below.
- Valentines Day: Some morning ice, warming to the upper 40s
- Friday: Warming to 50s. Near 60ºF between Baltimore and Washington
- Saturday: Snow southern Maryland, but during the day many roads will be wet
- Sunday: Light evening showers
- Ice Storm: Tuesday Night and Wednesday

Two Days To Thaw
This appears to be holding a track through the southern half of Maryland. M<ost paling during the day will likely mean stickage on the grass, but most roads wil be wet.
Euro Model —> slider
This shows snow mostly south of Washington on to Maryland’s lower Eastern Shore.
This wave appears to be light showers. Not a big deal at this time for us. Steady snow or mix into central and western PA.
Ice Storm: Tuesday Night into Wednesday
This is still on track as it looked for a few days. Cold air at the surface but warmer air aloft.
This could be a moderate impact Wednesday morning in metro areas. Might be a major extended ice event inland and up north again.
Euro Model —> slider
This model is later and colder. While it shows snow at the onset, it turns to ice for the evening.
Notes: I lean in favor of the Euro Model for both events…. Which means the weekend event will be a minor impact. However next week might be worth having a back up plan. The timing can change, but Tuesday night and Wednesday it is important to remember that ice storms often last longer than initially shown on models.

The second half of next week trends back closer to normal (mid to upper 40s).
