Wednesday February 5 2020

Today marks 10 years since the epic two snowstorms Baltimore received in a 5 day span. It was February 5 -10 2010 when 50 inches of snow fell in the region.  This winter and our current pattern is quite a different story. It illustrate it, snow is falling in western Texas and we are getting ready for 2 to 4 inches of rain through Friday.

Bring your coat today as temps will be ‘dropping’. The 30s are already in northern Maryland and southern PA. The 50s in Central Maryland will be replaced by the 30s during the day.


Storm Ahead!

Temperatures will swing wildly, starting with a drop into the 30s today. Rain showers this morning, then a break and return of rain this evening. The cold air might lead to patchy ice between Westminster and York. But Thursday will be mostly rain.  Heavy rain through Friday morning could lead to some flooding, only to be followed by some heavy snow in the mountains of Western Maryland.

Quick Cast:

  • Today: Turning Colder. Rain Showers
  • Tonight: Rain returns, some ice between Westminster and York
  • Thursday: Heavy Rain
  • Friday: Rain Ends Mid Day
  • –> Sunday: Possible Snow Showers
