Well, this weekend's storm is not what I originally thought it would be, but at least there is snow in the forecast. We have a cold front coming from the west, and a Low does form off of the Atlantic coast, but the model data does not have the Low in the path it needs to be for us to have lots of snow.
TIMING: Rain should start to fall late Friday, turning to all snow around midnight, ending mid Saturday.
ACCUMULATIONS: At this time it appears the area will have an average of 1 - 3 inches, with the lower amounts in S MD and higher end N of Baltimore with those along the MD/PA line maybe seeing a bit more.
CONCERN: There is a slight chance for the Low to actually move into a position wherein we get a large amount of snow. If that were to happen it would not be a blizzard but would be more than the 3 inches I mentioned above. As the Low forms tomorrow I will be able to track it's progress and know where it is actually travelling.
I will have an update later Friday as needed. Follow me daily on Twitter (@wxmanmd) for weather updates and tidbits.
