A few snow showers early, then the cold settles in

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WDVM) — GOOD THURSDAY! IT WAS A BLUSTERY DAY TODAY AND THAT WIND WILL CONTINUE TO COME OUT OF THE NORTHWEST AT 10-20 MPH TONIGHT. THERE MAY EVEN BE A FEW SNOW SHOWERS AROUND, BUT LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION IS ANTICIPATED. HIGH PRESSURE HOLDS STEADY THROUGH FRIDAY, KEEPING COLD AIR VERY MUCH IN PLACE. HIGHS TOMORROW MAY NOT GET OUT OF THE MID 30S, WHICH SETS THE STAGE FOR SATURDAY.

ON SATURDAY, WE’LL MONITOR THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME WINTER WEATHER TO MAKE A RETURN TO THE REGION. LONG-RANGE FORECAST MODELS HAVE COME INTO DECENT AGREEMENT WITH THE ONSET OF PRECIPITATION REACHING THE MOUNTAINS BEFORE DAYBREAK, TO AROUND MID MORNING NEAR I-95. AT THE ONSET, THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE IN THE FORM OF SNOW, BUT A GRADUAL WARMING OF THE TEMPERATURES THROUGH THE DAY AND INTO THE EVENING WILL HELP CHANGE THE SNOW OVER TO RAIN. THE HIGHEST SNOW TOTALS ARE FORECAST TO BE ACROSS EASTERN WEST VIRGINIA AND NORTHERN MARYLAND, WHERE A COUPLE OF INCHES ARE POSSIBLE. IN THE CHANGEOVER FROM SNOW TO RAIN, THERE MAY EVEN BE A PERIOD OF FREEZING RAIN FOR A TIME, OVER PARTS OF EASTERN WEST VIRGINIA, THE FAR NORTHERN SHENANDOAH VALLEY AND PARTS OF WESTERN/NORTH-CENTRAL MARYLAND. HIGH PRESSURE IS THEN FORECAST TO BUILD BACK INTO OUR REGION SUNDAY INTO MONDAY. WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE POTENTIAL WINTER WEATHER ON SATURDAY, FROM THE WDVM WEATHER CENTER.
