BALTIMORE, Md. (WBFF) – Weather alert continues through Tuesday due to additional snow, refreeze, and travel issues.
Another burst of snow began falling Monday afternoon.
Maryland State Police have responded 470 crashes between 8 p.m. Sunday and 4 p.m. Monday. (They’re only responsible for state roads.)
They also responded to 1,418 calls for service, and 216 disabled/unattended vehicles.
A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect through early Tuesday north and east of Baltimore.
Meanwhile, a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect elsewhere, including Baltimore City, but not the Lower Eastern Shore.
Here’s a look at how much snow fell around Maryland through Monday evening.
BWI airport even set a new daily snowfall record of 3.8″ of snow Sunday.
By Tuesday morning, we’re dealing with a recipe for tough travel with 2-5″ of snow left behind from Sunday plus the tenth to quarter-inch of ice that fell Sunday night into Monday, followed by another layer of several inches of snow still to fall… all with below-freezing road and air temperatures. Plan on dangerous travel due to ice and snow covered roads.
This is all due to a Nor’easter now barreling up the East coast and strengthening.
This will also send us gusty northerly winds and drive snow showers back into Maryland. With winds gusting up to 25 to 35 mph, wind chills stay in the brutally cold teens and low 20s Monday night and Tuesday.
Here’s an updated look tracking the occasional snow. If you watch the timeline, you’ll notice scattered snow showers now linger through late Tuesday.
We’ll pick up another 1″ or so of snow over the southwestern half of the area and 1-3″ over the northeastern half of the area with some localized higher amounts approaching the PA/DE line.
Stay weather alert through Tuesday now with snow showers ongoing. Here’s a look at the hazards we face through Tuesday.
Quieter weather finally resumes Wednesday and Thursday with temperatures remaining in the chilly low to mid 40s.
A new weather-maker is coming our way by the end of the week. This one will start as all rain with temperatures in the milder upper 40s Friday. After that, confidence goes down in our weekend forecast. Right now it looks like we’ll see a dry Saturday followed by the potential for at least some snow showers and much colder air returning Sunday.
