Saturday March 2 2019
Last night I was out with my family on the north end of our region and we drove through freezing rain around 9 PM. Shortly after I posted this on my Facebook page, it turned to sleet. Overnight the colder air won and snow reached southward into central Maryland and across to northern Delaware. I was hoping this particular event would not play out, but our place isa month the many that got 3 inches of fresh powder and this morning. I am on my way to shovel after posting this report.
There is still ice in the region that was under a Winter Weather Advisory. Here are the temperatures at 6 AM.
This system is moving out, and we will get to thaw back into the 40s this afternoon. A break before our next storm Sunday afternoon. See more on the Winter Storm Watch below.

This Afternoon- A chance to melt some snow
Winter Storm Watch Sunday Morning Into Monday Morning
- At first glance, this looks like it will be just for the northern counties inland from Baltimore.
- The average snowfall will be 3 to 6 inches with some higher spots.
- But, there has been a colder trend to shift this southward. The models below show the snow trying to reach through the city.
- The bulk of the snow will fall Sunday afternoon and be done before Monday morning.

This brings the snow through Washington and close to Annapolis

This holds the snow line north of I-95 missing Washington and Annapolis. Baltimore would be right on the edge.
NAM 3Km Snapshot
Notice the snow line is just north of Baltimore. This will once again be a very close call for the city. But like to be rain in southern Maryland.
Note: I am still in the middle of a big family weekend, so my updates will be limited. I do hope to have my call for to storm by Sunday morning before it begins.
Very cold air will follow the storm… Wednesday will be when we bottom out. There is hope for a return to near and above average temps by the middle of the month.
