A Deep Dive Into The Winter Storm

All winter weather modes possible...
Posted at 7:08 PM, Jan 25, 2021

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for most of Maryland, as a warm front is lifting moisture into an already near freezing Baltimore. We'll see a wintry mix-- with snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches and ice accumulations around a trace possible through tomorrow morning. Slippery road conditions are likely-- and could lead to hazardous driving conditions for both the evening (Monday) and morning (Tuesday) commute.


We're already seeing snow move into the city of Baltimore and areas north and west of it. Weather spotters in Garrett County have already reported an inch of snow and about a .10" of freezing rain. This will be our saga tonight as temperatures fall towards freezing across the state. Slipper drive for folks working third shift, with snow still falling across the area at 2am.


By morning, we'll still see limited moisture around, so count on pockets of wintry mix transitioning to rain. Cloudy skies stick around for the remained over the day. Most locations will pick up rough 1-2" of snow, but higher totals will be possible north and west of the city--especially at higher elevations.


While we have already seen reports of rain, sleet, freezing rain, and snow -- ice totals look to remain around a tenth of an inch for most of us, but isolated areas could see up to a quarter inch.
