Cold Enough For Some Snow

A west to northwest flow of air brought some unseasonably cold weather to the area Tuesday. High temperatures were stuck in the 40s.

The influx of cold air,  heating from the strong April sun and an assist from a weak weather disturbance brough some instability and clouds to the region by midday. There were plenty of precipitation returns on the radar but very little of it hit the ground. Most areas received a few sprinkles but the TV-11 weather office got reports of a few flurries from around the Towson area and from Carroll County.

Farther west, there was measurable snow. A viewer’s mother took the pictures below of the snowcover in Swanton, Maryland, near Deep Creek Lake.
