First Snowfall In Nearly A Year?

Low pressure approaching from the west, should pass south of Baltimore tonight, emerging on the coast near Norfolk, VA early Monday morning. On this path a light snowfall is expected for much of central Maryland. The last official snow accumulation at BWI-Marshall airport was back on February 11th and 12th of 2006, about 342 days ago! With some warmer air possibly mixing into the storm, snow may change to, or mix with sleet and some freezing drizzle before it tapers off in the pre-dawn hours of Monday. A general 1-3″ snowfall is most likely with the typical variations depending on ground temperatures, proximity of the warmer bay and the amount of sleet or freezing drizzle that develops. The higher snowfall totals are likely to be a little south of Baltimore with the lighter accumulations north of the city, near the Pennsylvania line. Winter is back!
