Monday January 6 2020

We are in the pattern where the cool down bring us back to near normal conditions. That is the weather we expect this week, including a period of snow Tuesday afternoon. This snow will be a reminder that it is winter, but the impact on travel will be limited. Most of the region will have snow fall on warmer pavement and simply melt. But some inland areas could have stickage to deal with later in the day and early evening.

This morning: A cold front will send in gusty winds at times and set the state for the next system.

I will have a closer map with potential accumulation in my next update. Where the snow sticks, the coldest areas could get a dusting to 2 inches.

Afternoon Temperatures


Wednesday Morning

There will be some risk of the melted snow on pavement to freeze overnight west and north of Baltimore.


Looking Ahead:

After the little snow event, the next weather feature will be a larger storm spread over the weekend.

I must state again that I do NOT trust modeling beyond  days. The snow event tomorrow is one I suggested last week when models had us staying all rain.  I am not suggesting this will be snow for us, but the track and timing could bring the heavy rain closer, sooner.

This product animation ends Saturday evening with the heaviest rain to our west. The impact on the Ravens game Saturday night is still subject to be more wet than shown here.


Temperature Outlook

It does look like we will have to wait until the last two weeks of the month for any signal of winter returning.
