Tiny chance of flurries this weekend
Baltimore-based professional meteorologist Eric the Red sent us a head's up that there's a slight chance of flurries this weekend.
"Two chances for 'snow' (emphasize quote-unquote). One is tonight, as a disturbance to our south produces some light rain and wet snow, [especially] south of Baltimore. A bit of a reprieve ... and then we could see some snow showers Saturday night." He adds, however, that if the light snow Saturday materializes, "it would do nothing more than coat the ground (and that's the "heavy" scenario)."
Some National Weather Service discussion about a clipper system heading toward the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states also mentions a chance for flurries Saturday night:
"THIS CLIPPER SYSTEM WILL NOT HAVE MUCH MOISTURE WITH IT...ALTHOUGH INCREASING DPVA AND A COUPLED-JET STREAK IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE THE ADEQUATE SYNOPTIC LIFT FOR LGT PRECIP TO REACH THE ALLEGHENY AND POTOMAC HIGHLANDS. GIVEN LATEST QPF AMOUNTS AND A 15:1 SLR...1-2 INCHES OF SNOW COULD BE EXPECTED ACROSS THE WRN SLOPES OF THE ALLEGHENY FRONT. LGT ACCUMULATIONS UNDER ONE INCH ARE POSSIBLE FARTHER EAST ACROSS CENTRAL MD AND THE ERN WV PANHANDLE. WITH DOWNSLOPING W-NW FLOW...ANY SNOW SHOWER ACTIVITY WOULD HAVE A HARD TIME MAKING IT EAST OF THE BLUE RIDGE. STILL CANNOT RULE OUT AN ISOLD FLURRY REACHING THE CITIES. TEMPS SAT NGT WILL FALL BELOW FREEZING EXCEPT IN THE CITIES AND ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST."
