Friday March 1 2019
Today is the start of Meteorological Spring, but we are far from done with winter. This latest snow event brought an average of 2 inches to most places in our region. But the range is between 1 to 3 inches. How much did you get? Traffic this morning depends on what roads were treated, and the final burst of snow crossing Rt 50 and to the Eastern Shore. But most schools have been delayed and it will take some daylight and slow warming to help thaw the rest pavement.
There is more on the way! Some rain showers will linger south, but another push of winter weather will arrive this evening. The concern is mainly for there colder suburbs to the north through tonight. Then we shift our focus to another storm Sunday into Monday morning. Oh, but wait. There long range has yet another event possible next weekend.

More Snow Sunday?
This next storm will follow a similar path, and be a little stronger. This is not a lock by any means… So we need to track this closely.
Please consider these notes then see the animations and two model snapshots below
- The rain/snow line will cut through our region. This is the hard part as to who will be affected.
- The European Model keeps the normally colder suburbs in the snow, but rain elsewhere.
- The American GFS Model shows snow for more of central Maryland
- Both show the freezing line north, so it may be a slushy snow with temps above freezing.
- Monday morning should turn colder, so it is possible to be wet then some freezing before schools open
American GFS shows more snow
European Model shows the snow line farther north
Let’s get through this morning’s clean up and I will have a better look at the return snow for tonight and this storm in my next report.
