Thursday April 1 2021

Snow showed up on radar this morning. It really tried to change over, and may have coated the grass in northern Frederick and Carroll Counties in Maryland. This is a signal of the cold air that will remain in place for a few days. So the calendar might suggest a day for pranks, but this is real. The joke may be on us.

Morning Doppler Radar

The radar showed snow and this was confirmed on the ground.  You may have had snow mix in as well, and there is a chance for more showers that may show it later today.

Winter Advisories

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in the mountains for 2 to 4 inches of snow.  A Freeze Warning on Delmarva where the growing season as begun. I expect there will be more of these issued over the next two days as we will see more local areas with cold mornings.
