Tuesday February 26 2019
The wind storm is over and cold air is left behind. There will be a breeze today average 10 mph, which will seem more calm and quiet. But cold air has settled back in and there will be slight wind chills to remind us it is still winter.
We are far from done with the snow. In fact the weather map today looks split with snow to the north and rain to the south, but the pattern will link up and line up for us to get snow by Friday morning. It looks like there may be a few more chances of snow through next week.

Morning Set Up
Water Vapor Satellite Loop
We can expect a mix of clouds and sun today. The split slow keeps snow across the Great Lakes and some rain in the south. These two tracks will link up for us at the end of the week.
Temperatures at 6 AM
Active Weather Pattern
The American GFS Model shows snow Friday morning, rain Saturday, then snow again Tuesday next week. Just for argument sake, the European Model actually shows the second rounds of snow on Saturday closer and multiple snow chances next week.
Friday Morning Snapshots
Light Snow: Less than 1 inch
Steady Snow: Total up to 2 inches
Freezing Line North of Baltimore: Total snow between 1 and 3 inches.
The Friday morning event will be a minor one, but timing might be enough for some school impact with delays.
Next week: I have seen multiple solutions with one or a few more hits of snow. It is to early to lock down, but a very high chance that the first two weeks of March will be much colder than average. I will have more on this in my afternoon update.
