Part Two Moving In

I just wanted to post this beautiful satellite image of today’s storm. Click on it for a larger version.

I didn’t want to mark it up with any reference points. You can visualize the storm center and it is southwest of Baltimore, in North Carolina.

The National Weather Service surface map from mid afternoon shows two low pressure centers combined into one large storm complex that was generating thunder and lightening in the Baltimore area in the four o’clock hour with a combination of snow, sleet and rain. The precipitation shield reached westward into West Virginia.

The map above shows storm tracks for the next three days. The coastal low is headed for the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Two other clipper type disturbances will be headed toward the Great Lakes and Mid Atlantic regions as well.

Snow chances should taper off after midnight. At least several inches of additional snow are likely guaranteed, with more than 6 inches in areas where heavy snow bands develop. Tom’s forecast calls for up to ten inches of snow.

Check out Tom’s detailed forecast this evening tonight on WBAL-TV 11 and stay up to date on wbaltv.com.
