THURSDAY: PARTLY CLOUDY BREEZY AND VERY COLD WITH INCREASING CLOUDINESS DURING THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS LO: 19 HI: 29

FRIDAY: CLOUDY WINDY AND VERY COLD WITH SNOW DEVELOPING DURING THE MORNING AND THE SNOW MAY BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES DURING THE AFTERNOON BEFORE IT LETS UP AND BECOMES A MORE SCATTERED AND SHOWERY VARIETY OF SNOW BY VERY LATE FRIDAY NIGHT OR EARLY SATURDAY MORNING WITH FOUR TO EIGHT INCHES LIKELY AS A STORM TOTAL (FROM ROUND ONE) LO: 24 HI: 29

NOTE: THE TIME THE SNOW ARRIVES MAY CHANGE AMOUNTS UP OR DOWN DUE TO THE HIGHER SUN ANGLE WE NOW HAVE AS WE NEAR SPRING AS WELL AS THE STORM PATH THAT MAY CAUSE AMOUNTS TO SHIFT NORTH OR SOUTH OF OUR AREA AND ALSO WITH ANY ICY RAIN CHANGES THERE WILL BE A LESSER SNOW TOTAL WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE IF A CHANGE OVER EVER HAPPENS DURING THE STORM OR STORMS THIS WEEKEND !!! BUT THE REAL QUESTION IS WILL THERE BE TWO MEDIUM STORMS OR JUST ONE BIGGER STORM NEARING A FOOT OF SNOW WITH HIGHER WINDS CAUSING SOME BLOWING AND DRIFTING OF THE HEAVY SNOW THAT FALLS IN MOST OF NORTH CENTRAL MARYLAND SOMETIME THIS WEEKEND ???

LOW PRESSURE WILL STRENGTHEN AS IT MOVES ACROSS SOUTHEAST VIRGINIA AND OFF THE VIRGINIA COAST OVERNIGHT INTO EARLY THURSDAY MORNING. THIS WILL CAUSE AN INCREASE IN WINDS OVERNIGHT…WHICH MAY GUST TO 35 MPH AT TIMES. THESE WIND GUSTS COMBINED WITH SOME LINGERING ICE ON TREES WILL LIKELY CAUSE MORE TREE BRANCHES TO COME DOWN. THIS COULD CREATE ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC BLOCKAGES AND POWER OUTAGES OVERNIGHT. BE CAREFUL IF TRAVELING AFTER DARK IN AREAS WHERE TREES BRANCHES MAY HAVE FALLEN OVER THE ROAD. ALSO BE PREPARED FOR A POWER OUTAGE IF ONE SHOULD OCCUR IN YOUR AREA.

IN ADDITION…NORTHWEST WINDS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO FALL INTO THE 20S OVERNIGHT. ANY AREAS THAT HAVE LINGERING MOISTURE ON ROADS AND SIDEWALKS WILL REFREEZE. THIS WILL LEAD TO AREAS OF BLACK ICE OVERNIGHT AND DURING THE MORNING RUSH HOUR.

FINALLY…A PERIOD OF SNOW WILL BRUSH THE MID ATLANTIC REGION OVERNIGHT. THE BEST CHANCE FOR ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOW WILL RESIDE FROM CENTRAL VIRGINIA TO LOWER SOUTHERN MARYLAND WHERE AN INCH OR TWO MAY ACCUMULATE. A COATING TO AN INCH IS POSSIBLE AS FAR NORTH AS THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA AND BALTIMORE CITY…WITH LITTLE OR NO ACCUMULATION EXPECTED ACROSS THE NORTHWEST BALTIMORE WASHINGTON SUBURBS. THE MOST LIKELY TIME FOR SNOW TO FALL WILL BE FROM 11 PM TO 4 AM.
