As I previously mentioned, the NWS has issued a Freeze Watch for us for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. I would not be surprised if they issue another one for Wednesday night. A strong cold front will move through the area mid-Tuesday dropping temps 20-30 degrees by evening. Wednesday's high temp will be in the mid 40s, maybe close to 50 for some. Tuesday and Wednesday overnight low temps will be in the low 30s.
TIMING: Rain will start from t...

Our snow chances for tomorrow still exist, and I'm confident we will see snow, but as I have been saying, it won't be a major issue for us. The snow will start around 7:00am or so and last into the evening. Snow that falls during the day will not stick, but any snow after sunset will stick to grassy areas. I don't see a major impact to roadways. The roads will remain wet, but not snow covered. I do worry about icing on the roads as the temps drop overnight Tues...

Model indications continue to move the Low off the coast, with it strengthening just to our north. I do feel we will see snow, but for snow lovers, we won't see much in the way of accumulation. As I have been saying, the timing and position of the Low are key for us to see accumulating snow. Well, the position seems to be too far east, and the timing gives us snow during the afternoon Tues. This late in March, snow will not stick if it falls during the day, stic...

I'm still watching the snow potential for Tuesday-Wednesday. Please don't follow the hype on many of the media outlets. Snow this late in the season, while possible, is hard to come by. The models are going back and forth with the position of the Low; sending it too far out to sea to affect us, then bringing it back closer to the coast, etc. This is normal this far out from the event, and normal for this time of the year. As the seasons transition the atmospher...

Looking at the latest data I see that the highest snow impact continues to be to our south below DC and into the eastern shore of MD. The NWS revised their map and it now looks similar to the map I posted yesterday. Those along the MD/PA line could see about 1-2" while central MD with 2-4" and S MD 4-6". I went low with my totals yesterday due to this being March, the warm ground, rain prior to the event, and lack of stickage tomorrow after sunrise.
