SNOW UPDATE ❄️: Thinking about Texas as I write this post ... and the rest of the mid-west with extreme temps. The family that I have that lives out in Iowa woke up to -20 degree F as the actual temperature ... with a -30 "feels like" temp this morning. Their furnace has been running non-stop ... does not shut off. Fortunately they are staying safe so far. Deadly temperatures. ⚠️
So, what's up for us on Thursday? Well ... looks like the possibility for more significant snow. The latest runs of the computer models are suggesting a widespread half a foot plus of snow across much of the state. Some areas could see upwards of 10-12 inches + 😯
The National Weather Service has placed a significant portion of Maryland under a winter storm watch for the following:
WHAT: Total snow accumulations of 5 or more inches and total ice accumulations of a quarter inch or more are possible.
WHERE: Pretty much the entire Baltimore/Washington area. Heavier amounts the further north you head.
TIMING: From late Wednesday night through late Thursday night.
POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Power outages and tree damage are likely due to the ice. Travel could be nearly impossible.
Yet another one to monitor closely. The confidence of the storm is high ... the amount of snow vs. ice is still in question. Let's hope for the system to favor snow 😁👍 ... ain't nobody got time for the ice 😝👎.
Stay tuned and #followthesnowman ⛄️
