Winter’s Last Gasp?

Spring arrives late Tuesday and it is going to be hard to crank up another fullblown winter storm before that so it would appear that this late winter storm is the last …. technically. Of course big snow makers can develop in early spring so we’ll just have to watch the pattern and see what develops. Long range models at the moment do point to another stormy & cold phase developing late in the month but there is a lot of uncertainty this far out.

This latest storm produced it’s biggest snows just west of the I-95 corridor, north of the Baltimore area. The Mid Atlantic region was caught in the early stages of the storm and sleet and rain cut down on the actual snow accumulation. On TV Hill we received .8 inches of snow but the liquid total for the two day event was 2.89 inches.

A sampling of snow totals: Frostburg, 6.5″; Pasadena, .5″; Owings Mills, 2.0″; Manchester, 5.5″; Westminster, 3.8″; Sykesville, 2.4″; Frederick, 7.5″; Bel Air Acres, 1.0″; Savage, 1.7″; Ellicott City, 1.0″; Columbia, .8″.

Think spring!
