The first part of the storm has moved through, now we have a lull until the main storm arrives in a couple hours. Since the temps continue to drop, the next wave will most likely be frozen precip. Based on latest data and observations, I am reluctantly dropping my accumulation amounts. I say reluctantly as I still believe this storm will over perform and that the southern track will turn a bit more to the north. But, in fairness, I have changed the amounts. But, this is still a big winter storm for us since we will begin with ice on top of which will be heavy snow. The rest of the week will be cold so this snow isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Actually, we may add to it Thursday (more on that later).

TIMING: Frozen precip to begin around 10:00pm or so, turning to snow a few hours after (unless the air cools faster). Snow should end Monday afternoon.

PRECIP TYPE: A period of freezing rain followed by a longer period of all snow. The snow will be wet and heavy.

ACCUMULATION: N MD could see 6-10"+ while those S of Baltimore City and into S MD could see 8-12". I am concerned that these numbers could increase. It all depends on how quickly we change to snow and how cold it gets Monday.

I am concerned about power outages later Monday, and the morning commute will be unsafe due to the ice and heavy snow. Follow me on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for weather tidbits and updates.
