The snow is falling and began falling right on schedule according to my forecast. I don't have much of an update, but here are a few points:
1. There could be a period of sleet and/or rain, but should be short-lived. Snow will move in again.
2. As I write this the Low is strengthening which means it will pull in more cold air and moisture.
3. As the Low moves up the coast there may be a lull in the action around midday, but in the late afternoon we could see snow again from the back flow of the Low.
I am looking at the possibility of us seeing more snow Friday evening as a clipper moves through. More on that later.
As a reminder, here is my forecast I posted Tuesday morning and which I view as still valid:
TIMING: Wednesday after 6:00pm into late Thursday. Since the storm is out of the south, S MD will have the snow before N MD.
PRECIP: It should start as all snow, changing to a period of sleet, than changing back to all snow. The track of the low will determine the precip type.
ACCUMULATION: I see S MD with 4-6+ (8?) inches and the Baltimore region 8-10++ inches with a chance for near a foot (depending on location). The amount of rain and sleet will lower the total snow accumulation, so my numbers could go up if there is a lack of mixed precip.
I will have another update as needed. Follow me on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for frequent storm updates.
