Enjoying this early taste of Spring? Actually, due to the fog these past couple days the temperature has stayed lower than predicted, although still above normal for this time period. But all that will soon change. If you look at current weather maps of the nation you will see very cold temps in the west and central US. Those temps will be moving our way, and the arctic air should be right behind it. Not to get too detailed (unless you want the details than let me know), but this coming week we will see a steady drop in temps as a cold front advances, yet the following week those temps should plummet and we will truly feel what Winter is about.
Will it snow? In the long term, yes, we will see snow this winter (as I have been saying since at least the end of November). In the short term we also may see some snow. No need for panicked trips to the grocery store though.
For the next couple days rain will be the predominant feature as the temps drop. But, Tuesday evening, those west and north of the about I-95 could see some snow or freezing rain. Those who do see snow will only see a dusting or so. Nothing major; but still snow. Those in S MD should stay all rain. But, there is a slight, small chance, that a coastal low would form. If that were to happen than there would be more snow in more areas. But honestly I don't yet see that scenario playing out. If I am wrong I will let you know ....
