An inch or two at worst
UPDATE, 7:15 a.m. SUNDAY: We haven't seen a flake out on the WeatherDeck in Cockeysville, but the NWS is reporting light snow in Anne Arundel, including Annapolis, in Washington, D.C., and even Westminster. The CoCoRaHS Network is reporting a bit of snow to our south, too. The entry from Waldorf, in Charles County, is scarcely believable. A typo? Should it read 0.5 inch? Can anyone confirm it?:
Waldorf: 5.0 inches
Parsonsburg, Wicomico County: 3.5 inches
Salisbury, Wicomico County: 3.0 inches
Leonardtown, St. Mary's Co.: 1.0 inch
Brandywine, PG Co.: 0.9 inch
Bryans Road, Charles Co.: 0.5 inch
Easton, Talbot Co.: 0.1 inch
UPDATE at 9:20 p.m. Saturday, from Sun reporter Jonathan Pitts: The State Highway Administration started pre-treating interstate highways in the Baltimore area, where they treated I-70, I-695 and I-95, this afternoon, according to Lora Rakowski, an administration spokeswoman. Crews will be staffing all SHA maintenance stops and deploying to their routes at midnight Saturday, Rakowski added, to begin salt application as precipitation was expected to begin.
Here's the snow forecast for Central Maryland for Saturday night into Sunday: Not to worry. Should be more of an early-spring curiosity than a winter storm.
