Skipping Ahead: Snow on Saturday 

Saturday has been shown consistently to start with snow and a wintry mix. I still believe the models have an error to sort out. I expect the snow will arrive earlier and the storm should track east of what is shown, which could bring us a little more impact. I will have more about this event in my next report.

Note: I DO NOT believe in showing snow amounts more than 72 hours ahead of an event. Projections too soon are often wrong.  But it appears a few inches and travel impact are likely if we get this to begin at or before sunrise.

Saturday Afternoon

I have been using 1 PM Saturday as a benchmark to compare long range modeling.  The European ECWMF Model appears to bring in the snow 6 hours later than the GFS. Bot bring in a few inches of snow then wintry mix. This will play a role in the Polar Bear Plunge in Annapolis.




Storm Animation

This is only one model animation and NOT the final solution. I expect the track will shift east and the arrival will be earlier (Friday night or before sunrise Saturday).
