Enjoying the snow? Thus far my forecast has verified and we are now in the lull I previously mentioned would happen. The Low is immediately to our east causing precip to fall around us, leaving us in the dry slot. As the Low moves to the NNE the precip will follow and so fill in our area once again. Another Low moving up the coast will help to aid in the precip later this afternoon. This is NOT yet over! The NWS has upped their projected totals to what I have have been saying since Tuesday. Their totals are valid through Friday morning and taking into account the new snow tonight. Warnings and advisories are in effect for tonight through Friday morning (see below).
TIMING: Snow will return to the area after 4:00pm and last through the early morning hours of Friday.
ACCUMULATION: Another 2 - 4 inches expected, even in S MD. This will bring totals in S MD to around 6" or so (not counting what compacted).
PRECIP TYPE: The precip will be all snow.
WIND: The new threat is strong gusty winds from the N. This will cause low wind chills and lower the air temp allowing for more snow.
NEXT: There is a clipper moving through our area late Friday which could give us another few inches of snow.
