Spring Snow Update

It hardly feels like spring today. Plenty of sun so far but temperatures have warmed only into the mid 40s after a morning start in the upper 20s and low 30s.

Two weather disturbances continue to develop to the west and are on tap the move into the cold air this weekend.

The afternoon satellite image shows clouds from one disturbance moving into Arkansas and with another disturbance to the northwest of that. High pressure, rooted in cold, Canadian air, reaches into the Mid Atlantic region.

The storms out west will slip under the southern edge of the cold air and pass mostly to the south of Baltimore over the next couple of days.

The first disturbance comes in this evening, passing mostly south with only limited moisture.

The second disturbance starts to move into the area late Saturday

The Saturday evening forecast map shows the low pressure center as it moves out of Arkansas toward Georgia. The Baltimore area will be on the north edge of the precipitation shield of this disturbance and on the south edge of the cold air. An east-west oriented band of snow will likely fall across the area, mostly early Sunday. Some light accumulation is likely, perhaps as much as a couple of inches worth around Baltimore with a bit more to the south and west.
