Go Ravens!! As a result of an interaction with a Low pressure system moving to our north, moisture and warm air will move into our area from the south. Since the lower atmosphere and surface are cold, the warm air will rise above the cold air. Once the rain begins and moves through the colder layer it will freeze, hence the creation of freezing rain.
Late tonight, near midnight, those north and west of Baltimore could see a couple hours of freezing rain, turning to all rain by the morning rush hour.
As I often state in my posts, I am not a fan of long-range forecasts, especially this Winter, but I do want to mention the potential for a coastal storm later this coming weekend. I will keep an eye on it, but the potential is there for our first major snow. But, as we have seen this Winter, the model data is not dependable this far out. More later.
