Snow in NW suburbs "shouldn't be a big deal"
My favorite teacher and her very excited First Graders report that it is "snowing to beat the band" out in NW Baltimore County just after noon. They were on their way out for a romp. Any other snow reports out there, campers?
The National Weather Service folks in Sterling say, "While this shouldn't be a big deal, it may result in a few white patches." Here's part of the Short-Term Forecast:
"LIGHT SNOW WILL END ACROSS FREDERICK AND INSIDE THE CAPITAL
BELTWAY BY 12:30 PM...WITH THE BACK EDGE PROGRESSING ACROSS
METROPOLITAN BALTIMORE BETWEEN 1 AND 2PM. JUST ABOUT EVERYONE
WILL RECEIVE A FEW SNOWFLAKES...BUT A FEW COMMUNITIES MAY RECEIVE
A LIGHT DUSTING OF SNOW...A QUARTER INCH OR LESS."
In fact, it is 34 degrees and snowing lightly here at Calvert and Centre streets. Let the winter begin! The forecast beyond today calls for some milder temperatures, reaching the mid-40s for Saturday and Sunday at BWI.
Rain is expected to develop late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, with a quarter- to a half-inch possible Sunday, ending in snow showers early Monday morning.
Next week will be sharply colder, with highs near 30 degrees and overnight lows in the teens before moderating at mid-week.
