MONDAY SNOW

UPDATE:

6:00 PM, Monday, 25 March, 2013

The Baltimore official snowfall total for Monday at BWI-Marshall Airport as of 5:00pm was 3.2 inches, beating the 1933 record of 2.5 inches. The final snowfall total for Monday will not be determined until after midnight.

Today’s storm was strengthening off the coast during the afternoon and the dramatic NASA satellite image below demonstrates how surprisingly similar this deepening low pressure center  resembles a hurricane.

 PREVIOUS ENTRY:

The snowfall finally started in the predawn hours on Monday with temperatures close to the freezing point so it started to accumulate. By 8:30am as much as 5 inches of snow was reported around the area. More is on the way.

Image

The National Weather Service 8am surface map shows the strengthening offshore low with the weakening low over Ohio. The offshore low will be pushing moisture toward the Baltimore area the rest of the day with what is expected to be a combination of rain and snow.

Image

The storm total forecast map indicates a potential for a near record snowfall for Baltimore. The record is 2.5 inches set in 1933. It’s tough to make snow in late March.

The snow totals reported to the National Weather Service as of 8:30 this morning are as follows.
