It might be hard to image snow is on the way after many place got close to or reach 70ºF. But what is important to note is that the mention of snow for the first time this season is likely NOT going to be impactful for most.  This is why I did not bite on the hype last week. This will be tame compared to the wild model plots a week ago.

The roads are warm, and the temperatures are likely to not drop below freezing until after the snow has stopped and the sun has set on Tuesday. The only potential issue I see could be on Delmarva as shown below. In fact, my gut is telling the combination of the full moon and Low Pressure riding along the front might bring an added burst to the Lower Eastern Shore overachieving the burst of snow there later Tuesday.

I have posted two timelines below for your to compare: Snow and Temperatures.  Falling flakes will get the initial attention but the cold and wind chills on Wednesday will be the big story. Also see the new FITF Gear This Year below.

Winter Weather Advisory

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in the mountains, including Garrett County in Maryland. Due to the arrival before sunrise and lower temperatures, these locations could have some stickage on the roads. Total accumulations likely in the 1 to 3 inch range, with higher amounts up by Cannaan Valley and Snowshoe in West Virginia.  See the snow maps below.


Simulation Timelines

  • I put this first to highlight that while temps will fall quickly, they will likely stay above freezing during the day locally while the change to snow occurs.
  • Mix from rain to snow will begin in the morning in the suburbs of Baltimore. The snow will expand and spread south.  The enhancement AFTER the front passes could produce a snow burst, mostly south/east of the cities.
  • In addition to the mountains, the snow burst may hit Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore and southern DE mid afternoon into evening. This may need to be watched after sunset for wet roads freezing as the cold air catches up there.

Snowfall Potential

It will look like winter in the mountains. The snow burst on Delmarva could coat the grass.  This product only accounts for what will fall, not what will stick. There will be melting involved and wet roads.

Potential issue could be some icing on roads on Delmarva that could still be wet when temps tank after sunset.


Wednesday Weather

Windy and cold! It will be that simple





The ‘normal’ high is 58ºF.  These numbers will be about 20 degrees BELOW ‘normal’ . Compare to the near 70ºF highs today (Monday) and the average will still be below.


  • Thanks to Shannon (weather wife) who wanted to bring these hats to life.  *Mustard is her favorite color
  • The Maryland Hoodie is high quality and a new way to show off our love of Snow and State.
  • The T-shirt… Something you may find familiar. Why just a T? Because many schools I visit have the heat on high for faculty and staff. But you can put a long sleeve underneath for cool look.  I will have wifey model these soon 🙂
