Snow on Saturday

Another potential snowmaker moves into the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday. This time, snow and ice could reach a little farther south and east.

Friday Night:
Snow showers begin to develop from the southwest after Midnight

Saturday Morning:
Snow becomes more widespread around 7 am for central and northern areas, with an icy mix southeast of I-95.

Saturday Afternoon:
Snow in central Maryland begins to change over to sleet and ice, areas southeast of I-95 become mostly rain

Expect most of the snow accumulation by 12 pm. The Baltimore Metro Area will see a general 1-3″ while the northern and western suburbs could get a little more. Trace amounts of ice or snow may accumulate southeast of the I-95 corridor. St. Mary’s county as well as the lower Eastern Shore counties may see some snow and ice early on, but this primarily be a rain event.

Saturday Evening:
Wintry mix tapers off from southwest to northeast, roads remain slippery

Saturday Night:
Decreasing clouds, temperatures fall below freezing overnight, roads become icy

Sunday:
Icy spots on the roads, especially in the morning, partly cloudy skies around the state, isolated snow showers in Western Maryland and central Pennsylvania.

NOTE: it’s important to note that the computer models have really back off on snow accumulations for Saturday. While we are taking this into consideration, we must remember that the past two snowstorms outpeformed the models, meaning, we got more snow than what was expected. Only time will tell whether or not this is the case again.
