New Storm 24 Hours Away

It looks like the next storm coming down the pike has the potential to be significant, but probably not in the same league as last weekend’s wintry blast.

The storm was over the central U.S. Monday afternoon. Skies remained clear over the Mid Atlantic region and you can see the snow on the ground.

The forecast map above shows the storms’ position Tuesday evening. It is expected to intensify as it moves out over the Atlantic. The rain/snow line is across extreme southern Maryland and may eventually play a role in reducing snow totals south of Baltimore.

Above is one computer model’s estimate on snow accumulation for the approaching storm. The color coding shows 8-12 inches around Baltimore and a bit more to the north and west and less south of Annapolis. The Delmarva Peninsula stands to receive anywhere from 2-8 inches with the lesser amounts to the south. Keep in mind that this is an early estimate by just one computer model and confidence in snow accumulation forecasts will increase in the next 18-24 hours.

The pink shaded area on the map above identifies the Winter Storm Warning the National Weather Service has issued for the TV-11 viewing area. Numerous other Watches, Warnings and Advisories are also noted.
