A snowstorm missed us just to the south today, bringing several inches of snow to Baltimore and DC, with reports of double digit amounts over parts of Virginia. The storm is now pushing east, taking the clouds with it. With cold air in place, clear skies, and calming winds overnight, it will be one of our cooler nights of the season so far with temperatures dropping to around 20. Some of the usual colder valleys could dip into the teens.
The middle part of the week looks dry and a bit milder with highs pushing into the mid-40s by Wednesday. However, changes take place toward late-week as another cold shot of air moves through Wednesday night, potentially setting up for some snow Thursday night into Friday morning. The track of the storm looks coastal, but there’s still a question as to how strong it will be. It looks like we’ll get at least some snow, but it will take another day or two to determine if it will be a little or something more impactful for the morning commute.
It will turn colder by the start of next weekend with highs back down into the 30s and lows plunging into the low 20s. Sunday looks to bring another storm system that could potentially start as freezing rain given the morning low temperatures before changing to plain rainfall. January is providing some activity for our weather team to keep track of to start 2022. We’ll keep you updated!
