Heavy snow & severe t’storms…just like spring!

nam-fcst-12z-19feb09

Low pressure tracking from the great lakes toward New England tonight, produced a March-like wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain around here today.  Officially, just 0.2″ of snow at BWI-Marshall, but this same storm system will dump much heavier amounts of snow on areas just northeast of here.  From the Poconos to the Catskills to the Adirondacks, Green and White mountains, 6-15″ of snow will be possible tonight and early Thursday.  The main area of low pressure is expected to redevelop on the New England coast Thursday afternoon, prolonging the snowfall for the colder sections of New England.  To our south, the cold front has been triggering severe thunderstorms, with tornado watches posted this evening in parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia.

The same front will sweep across Maryland Thursday with gusty winds, falling temperatures and possibly a few more snow showers.
