Don't get too excited ... There is an Alberta Clipper moving near the area, and with today's high pressure system moving off the coast the return flow could draw moisture into the clipper adding to the snow chance. But, all I am talking about is a dusting at most. Even those in S MD could see snow flakes flying. Those across the MD/PA could see an inch of accumulation. The timing is around midnight tonight into early Sunday morning.
Those who want snow, do not yet despair. I hear many people comparing this winter to last year's lack of snow, yet that was not a normal winter for us. Nor was the 2009/2010 winter wherein we had back to back blizzards. It seems that particular winter has become the standard many people compare future winters against, but as with last year, that was an anomaly. The snow this past Christmas Eve central MD encountered was the first Christmas Eve snow in 10 years! Typically central and S MD doesn't see measurable snow until late January through the beginning of March. Any other snow is bonus. So, if you want snow, have faith.
Next week we will experience a warm up with some areas into the 60s degrees. The following week looks to be a cool down with the end of January a possibility for frozen precip, but way too far out to bank on anything just yet.
