Spring snowstorm, no sweat
Forecasters are looking for no more than an inch of snow here from the storm that's expected to develop off the coast tomorrow. It may be worse to our south and west, but while we could see some white on the grass, our roads should not be worse than wet. Here's the advisory at this hour.
We can handle this. Am I right Baltimore? Sure we can. Here's the latest forecast. And here's the national radar loop, which shows the moisture on its way. Easy to see why the Dallas region got hit so hard by rain over the weekend. The storm will intensify as it reaches the coast tomorrow. Here's AccuWeather's snow forecast map. Not much to worry about there.
Snow in March - even in Spring - should come as no surprise. There has been snow on every date in March, according to the snow records kept for the region since 1883 (although only once before since this young century began). The record for a Mar. 21 for Baltimore is 9.7 inches, recorded in 1964. Many of us can remember snow on the Orioles at Camden Yards. Someone out there will recall the date, but I was out there on a story - I think it was a pre-season game not long after the new stadium was built - and the snow started to fly.
Spring, by the way, arrived officially at 1:25 p.m. today.
