Snow lovers rejoice while others just wish winter was over already. The active late winter weather pattern continues with another potential storm lurking for the start of the new workweek. This would be our fourth storm of the bunch "IF" it manages to make an impact within the Baltimore metro area or even Maryland for that matter. As of Saturday after March 10, 2018 there is a possibility we could have rain and snow or maybe not see anything at all. It will all depend on the final track of the system which the models continue to have trouble in pinning down.

Right now the models have come to an agreement on a weaker storm that looks to take a more southerly track. This would leave us with us with a close brush by of rain and snow Monday mid afternoon into early Tuesday morning. If this comes true little to no accumulation is expected with no problems expected on area roadways since temperatures will remain above freezing. Wind will be the bigger story with gusts back around 30-40 mph on the back end of the system as it departs.

Below is the futurecast from the NAM, European, and of course our outlier the GFS. All three models continue to show a system that is just far enough north to bring a chance of light wintry precipitation to areas mostly south and east of Baltimore. Such locations would include those living south of US-50 (i.e Annapolis, Easton,  & Ocean City).  

Either way though any precipitation that fall will have trouble sticking with temperatures above freezing. Another round of models is expected to come in later on this evening and should give us a better clue to what will happen for the start of the new week. Right now it looks as if this will be a close miss to our south leaving those who like snow with that upside down frown.
