White Christmas chances here and around the nation
The National Weather Service has up a handy U.S. map on chances of a white Christmas. The southern and eastern half of Maryland is coded with less than 10% chance and the central/western part is 10-25%. The early NWS forecast for the Baltimore area is cloudy with a high of 43.
Here's Baltimore meteorologist Eric the Red's latest take on Christmas weather:
"A disturbance in the southern jet stream will race northeast off the Carolina coast, while another disturbance in the northern jet stream races by to our north. These two features will remain separate (no phasing), and that as they say is that. Christmas Day - as it looks now - will be breezy and cold. If the northern-stream disturbance slows down or were track a bit farther south, then this would change. But really, that's wish-casting."
