2 Snow Chances In 4 Days

U.S. model keeps Baltimore on western fringe of Sunday snow

Canadian model also produces snow on Sunday in Baltimore

European model tracks the coastal storm too far east for Baltimore snow

A large and powerful Pacific storm has moved into the Rocky Mountain states tonight.  Two parts from this storm will head east into the unseasonably cold air covering the eastern half of the nation, bringing a couple chances of snow to Maryland through the weekend.  The first chance of snow comes from a fast moving low pressure system that is forecast to track west to east along the Virginia/North Carolina border on Thursday.  This system has a 50% chance of producing 1-2″ of snow around the Baltimore area from late morning into the evening rush hour.  A 3-4″ snowfall is possible in southern Maryland.  The second chance of snow comes over the weekend.  The latest computer model data shows this storm tracking a little farther east, leaving the Baltimore area on the western fringe of the potential snow beginning late Saturday evening and continuing into Sunday afternoon.  Because the models are trending east with this system, we’ve dropped the weekend snow chance from 40% to 30%.
