November 18 2022

Friday Morning Update 

There is a lot of attention on the Lake Effect Snow in Buffalo, but that same energy is what has brought us colder air. A cold front will reinforce the cold air and also allow a band of snow showers to pass through some of our region today. In this case near and north of Baltimore.

The cold air is in place and strong winds will persist. Yesterday winds gusted between 35 and 50 mph. Today may be just a little less intense.

Morning Surface Weather

Lake Effect Snow – This is a very localized event.

A cold front will pass through this afternoon and bring a band of snow showers east of the mountains. This will include parts of metro Baltimore into southern Pennsylvania. What follows will be a very cold weekend.
