This Winter has definitely been a challenge to forecast. The model data has been skewed and most of the snow chances have skirted the Baltimore area. It is as if there is a dome over the area preventing the snow to fall here, but allowing it to fall all around Baltimore. Of course that's not true, but most of the snow chances that have gone bust for us have exceeded the forecast just to our north and west. Yesterday most of us didn't get snow accumulation, but those west of Baltimore saw up to 4 inches while those in S PA saw a couple inches. This morning those in VA and NC are seeing accumulating snow. But not us.
Today, the coastal Low does appear to be too far out to sea to effect central MD, although S MD could see a dusting to an inch later this afternoon. A Low, just S of the Great Lakes is moving E and so those in N Baltimore Co and S PA could see a dusting to an inch of snow later today.
Tomorrow there is a slight chance for some in MD to see a dusting of snow. Other than that, those who don't like snow are in luck.
In the long range there is a chance for snow the end of the week, but of course it is too far away for any certainty, and given the trend this Winter, I'm not sure I will believe the data until I see the snowflakes.
