Friday April 16 2021
A spring snowstorm is hitting New England today. Some of the mountains will receive over 6 inches off snow with flakes flying near Boston.
But there have been snow showers even closer in central Pennsylvania and western Maryland. This is all wrapping around a strong Low Pressure, and some showers could reach us today. The cold pattern will remain with us into the weekend.
Morning Surface Weather
Low Pressure off of the New England coast is responsible for the snow showers being pulled off of the Great Lakes. It is possible some showers reach northeastern Maryland with rain, but some mixed flakes this morning.
The more impressive snow band has been into north central Pennsylvania. The upper level winds are pulling this southward and it may reach northeast Maryland (Harford/Cecil) and northern Delaware this morning with showers (rain/snow mix).
Western Maryland Snow Cams
There have been snow showers in Garrett County, but the Live cam shows it did not amount to much over McHenry and Wisp.
This webcam is positioned at The Greene Turtle Deep Creek Lake and shows Wisp Resort, including a zoomed-in view of Squirrel Cage, The Face, the terrain park, Boulder, the mountain coaster, the tubing park and a shot of McHenry Cove at Deep Creek Lake!

We will be stuck in a chilly pattern, but the wind and more clouds will lower the risk of frost (this time).
More clouds and brisk winds should keep temps from getting into frost territory in the morning. The afternoon will be a struggle to reach to 50s in northern zones.
If you are going to the boat show, it will chilly!
Storm Animation: Friday Through Wednesday
We remain in a chilly pattern, but a brief warm up will happen before the next cool down.
Next week we will bring in more chilly rain, with snow still showing up in northern Pennsylvania to New York.
This forecast is set for Baltimore at BWI. I’ve highlighted the coolest mornings where inland areas are likely to have frost.
Sunshine Sate Of Mind
I am done with the cold and snow (for the season). I am embracing my wife’s mantra of Sunshine State of Mind.
This was designed by Shannon Berk and we will be wearing it through spring and to the beach.
