Coastal Storm Close Enough?

lowtrack_public_jan11_3pm

The Friday runs of computer models trying to get a handle on a possible coastal storm late this weekend seem to be converging on a track that takes the storm too far east for a direct hit on Baltimore, but close enough for at least some wintry precipitation. The image posted above shows the most likely track of the surface lows that will impact our area this weekend and early next week. The coastal storm will likely brush central and eastern Maryland with rain changing to snow Sunday night into Monday. The low moving through the Great Lakes is expected to drift south and east bringing a threat of snow showers or flurries Monday night and Tuesday. And the stormy weather may continue through the end of next week! Extended range forecasts are showing two more low pressure systems moving into the mid Atlantic states from the south next Thursday and again next Friday night and Saturday. If any cold air can move into the region we will be facing major challenges trying to decide where the rain/snow line will set up for the next seven days.
