Snow Closed Schools In Southern Maryland Then Next Storm Next Weekend

Snow Closed Schools In Southern Maryland Then Next Storm Next Weekend

Monday December 10 2018

The weekend storm proved itself a force to reach into Maryland, but only the southern part with a sharp cut off line. This is the third year in a row this part of the state got an early taste of winter and it has been enough to close schools in many counties. The early report of snow posted here is not the final map. This only includes snow up to 7 PM Sunday, but it showed southern St. Mary’s County with 4 to 6 inches of snow. It will be updated later this morning.

Outlook

There is a small chance of flurries on Thursday, then we get in on the warmer side of the next storm. Considering possible model error like this past event… We need to consider there track may shift and the back edge of the snow might mix in snow over the weekend. That is seen on the FV3-GFS here. That was one of the best performing models with the recent event.
