UPDATE: Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect in Northwest MoCo from 2am-8am.Snow expected. Total snow accumulations 1 to 2 inches are expected, with isolated totals of 3 inches possible for elevations above 1000 feet.
From the National Weather Service
“There is a potential for hazardous commuting conditions for the Wednesday morning commute. A period of accumulating snow is
POSSIBLE Wednesday morning across the Baltimore MD/Washington DC metro areas, with up to an inch of snow accumulation possible on area roads, with the highest chances north and west of Interstate 95.”
As you can see in the maps from the National Weather Service, Capital Weather Gang, NBC4, WUSA9, Fox5, and ABC7, we are not expecting a lot of snow…as most naps have us between a coating to 2 inches.
This one will be more about when it falls rather than how much. Temperatures almost reached 60° today (I was reminded a few dozen times), but anyone that has experienced weather in our area should know that a 25-30° swing in 18 hours is pretty easy for us.
Temperatures may not reach the freezing mark at all, but they’ll get close overnight. Rain will changeover to snow between midnight and 4am for us and last a few hours, clearing up by late morning.
If enough snow falls overnight, it could make for a slushy morning commute which could easily lead to a delay. If we see the lower side of projections, I would expect wet roads in the AM.
I’d expect the usual suspects to get the higher end while spots closer to the beltway get less.
This won’t be an easy one, but our first call is 2 pencils!
If an update is needed, it’ll come later tonight.
