ICE UPDATE ❄️ and MD SCHOOL STATUS SNOWBALL PREDICTION ⏰: Good evening everyone. What a rollercoaster 🎢 weather week we’ve had in MD. We are finishing off the work week with a chance of freezing rain tomorrow morning. Much of northern MD is under a Winter Weather Advisory from the NWS. Due to the chance of ice, lets throw out 1 SNOWBALL for a slight chance of a delay tomorrow morning.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM EST FRIDAY
WHAT: Mixed precipitation expected. Ice accumulations of around one tenth of an inch, with locally two tenths of an inch in the higher elevations. Snow and sleet accumulations less than a half inch are also possible.
WHERE: Portions of central, north central and northern Maryland, northern and northwest Virginia and eastern West
WHEN: Until 10 AM EST Friday.
IMPACTS: Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning or evening commute.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Light mixed precipitation will occur at times today, but a prolonged period of freezing rain will lead to greater impacts tonight into Friday.
Stay tuned and #followthesnowman ☃️
MARYLAND SCHOOL STATUS DELAY/CLOSURE SNOWBALL SCALE
1 Snowball = Slight chance of a delay, but most likely opening on time.
2 Snowballs = 50% chance of a delay and ever so slight chance of a closing.
3 Snowballs = It could go either way. Probably at least a delay, but a closure isn't off the table either.
4 Snowballs = A delay is pretty much inevitable. There is also a 60% chance of a closure.
5 Snowballs = Guaranteed delay. You can also party, because schools will almost certainly be closed.
