SNOW UPDATE ❄️: Good morning everyone! We are experiencing a bit of deja vu this morning as we await another winter storm system rolling through late tonight (most likely after midnight) and into Sunday.
Could there be more to this one than what we are seeing? Mother Nature likes to play games ... especially with us here in MD in the realm of snow. Sometimes we have near "perfect" prediction data that rolls in many days out making predictions seem like an easy call ... when in reality a bust sometime occurs and we get little to nothing. Other times we see very little data rolling in initially and we unexpectedly get hit hard. Could this situation be the later? Regardless, confidence is high for more significant snow within the next 24 hours.
Winter storm warnings have been put into place across the state overnight. Here's what we are potentially looking at (from the NWS):
WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 3 AM TO NOON EST SUNDAY
WHAT: Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 6
inches. (I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's possible some areas see a bit more than 6 inches ... (upward of 10 perhaps?🤔))
TIMING: From 3 AM to noon EST Sunday.
IMPACTS: Travel could be very difficult
ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Snow is expected to begin between 3 AM and 5 AM, and may briefly mix with rain at first. The heaviest snow is expected between 6 AM and 10 AM, when visibility may be reduced to a quarter mile and snowfall rates could reach one inch per hour.
