November 15, 2022

Tuesday Morning Update 

Cold air has settled in this morning, including the first freeze for portions of Delmarva. It’s the area inland with the 20s that is significant with the approach of the next weather system.  With clouds moving in early and trapping the cold air, there will be a burst of snow and sleet for many areas inland during the afternoon and evening. 

I do not want you to be caught off guard with this first winter event.  There is a Winter Weather Advisory for far western Maryland and interior Pennsylvania. However, there will be frozen stuff falling in the nearby suburbs of Baltimore. 

The roads should remain wet and I will highlight those areas in this post. 

Headlines:

  • Rain, Sleet, and Snow arrive for most After 1 PM
  • Burst of Sleet and Snow: NW Suburbs of Baltimore into the evening
  • Snow Burst and road stickage WEST of I-81
  • Tonight: Turning to all rain, ending before sunrise

Morning Temps 

  • Quite a few freezing temps observed on Delmarva.
  • Check out the 20s inland. 

 

Winter Weather Alerts:

Freeze Warning: Delmarva will give it another try after not getting to 32ºF Monday morning.

Winter Weather Advisory: Some stickage may affect travel on I-68, I-70 west of Breezewood, and I-81.

I have colored in a section left of the light blue line where I believe a period of snow or sleet may fall, which I’ll explain below.

 

Morning Surface Weather

This complex pattern is highlighted by a more organized Low Pressure along the Gulf Coast. This will track close to Maryland… enhancing the rain and keeping the colder air inland.

I am marking this track in my Atmospheric Memory file for the winter ahead.  It is significant for what I believe will be an active winter.

Wide View Forecast

1 PM Tuesday to 1 PM Wednesday 

This event will arrive this afternoon, then be gone before sunrise on Wednesday… Places that start with snow or sleet should turn to rain overnight.

GFS Model Snow?

This is the high end of potential within reason

I do not trust the 2 to 5 inches between Westminster and York. This is assuming all stickage and does not account for melting.  But I needed to share with you just in case there is a surprise burst this evening.
