Weather History: Spring Snowstorm 2018

Just think one year ago to this day (March 20th) we were talking snow on the first day of Spring in Central Maryland. From the Eastern Shore to the I-95 stretch and mountains of Maryland substantial accumulations were reported. All of this came during a year (2018) of limited snowfall with many areas barely making a totals of 12" for the year. On average most areas in an around the Baltimore metro picked up 5-8" of snow with localized heavier amounts to the north and west as well as out on the Eastern Shore.
