Final call for our area is a widespread 3-5” of snow, with locally up to 6” in a few spots. This will be the last snow until at least Sunday. After that winter will return ... and well, I guess it is still February.
1) Storm comes in with strong burst of heavy snow after midnight and tapers off toward sunrise.
2) New storm develops eastern shore of middle portion of Chesapeake Bay area late helping to keep snow going esp. locations east of us.
3) Some on and off light snow will continue into the mid morning.
4) Clouds should break up some in the afternoon. Temps rebound to the upper 30s.
Wed will still be pretty nice and really down right seasonal. Our long term average temps average about 40 degrees right now, so highs Wed in the low 40s is pretty “normal”.
Thursday will be chilly to start, with thickening clouds. It looks like this will not be the warmest, most pleasant day. Damp and chilly as cold air gets stuck at the surface. High: 36. Low: 36 as temps rise slowly during the night.
Friday: Front passes through in the morning, with rain showers, some heavy. Becomes windy, but warm as temps surge into the 50s and then slowly fall back later in the day.
Large storm in the Midwest is bigger and stronger than I expected 48 hours ago, meaning it is the main player this week. It will help push the cold air (see previous post about concern of pushing cold air) meaning we turn colder earlier in the weekend. The result is some snow will be possible early next week, possibly starting Sunday. Have to watch out for that. In a nutshell …
Saturday will now feature more sunshine, and be rather nice. High: 43. Low: 25.
Sunday: Colder, as clouds increase. Snow arriving at night? High: 35. Low: 26.
