Today is a special day! It’s my older son’s birthday. You may remember him as the cofounder of Kid Weather App. Well, today he is 15 years old and 6’1″. His childhood seemed too quick, but he’s still my boy that reminds me we are in the second half of winter now. That’s also a reminder that our real winter weather often is just beginning.
This first push of cold air is falling flat, but we talked about that already. It will bring in some snow or rain showers later today, and temperatures back too seasonal normal cold. But, there are two more cold surges from the latest Polar Vortex split that are showing up well on the outlook below.
Morning Surface Weather
This weather system covers a large area, and was rather intense. Heavy rain and snow in moving away into New England. But the Upper Level Low is where the core of this (modified) cold air is located and will swing our way. That will bring in the snow/rain showers later.
Forecast Snapshot: Central Maryland
Snow or rain showers will be de eloping between 4 PM and 10 PM.

This is not precise, but an idea of the development of showers later today. The air aloft is colder, so there could be more mix or sleet even in areas that remain above freezing.
Western Maryland: In addition to a few inches of snow today, the cold pattern will keep flurries and snow showers across Garrett County and the high mountains for a few more days.
