Winter Weather Advisory Today: A Little Snow Can Bring Big Problems

Winter Weather Advisory Today: A Little Snow Can Bring Big Problems

Friday February 1 2019

Light snow will be moving in to our area this morning. Some has already shown up on radar, but the air is so cold and dry, a lot has not reached the ground. Gradually the air will saturate and we will get some stickage during the morning. As this develops, the initial snow may impact Washington to Annapolis only this morning. Baltimore to southern PA continue through the day. The Eastern Shore and even the beaches will get snow and slick roads this afternoon and early evening.

One problem is that it is so cold, anything that falls will stick. Thursday at Baltimore’s BWI broke a 70 year old record for the coldest afternoon for the date with a high of only 22ºF.  We are in the deep freeze and will remain there all day. Here is a look at the temperatures this morning. Note that with air this cold, the snowflakes will be dry and fluffy. That means they blow around easier, but also we can get more to fluff up with less moisture.

Winter Weather Advisory

Washington to Annapolis should only have impact this morning.

York and Lancaster PA were not included, but I think they should be.  Plan for snow to slow you down on the roads there.

Cecil and Kent Co should have been in the Advisory as well. I don’t make those, but can alert you to be prepared.
