3/15 MORNING UPDATE: "Beware the ides of March."


Quick overview of the accumulation forecast for tonight through Wednesday.

1. Central PA: 3 to 6 inches by Wed afternoon.

2. Eastern PA: (north of Chester County) 5 to 7 inches by Wed evening.

3. Philly area: (Chester County on west) 1-3 inches by Wed evening, mainly on grassy areas.

4. Baltimore: 2-3 inches north of a line from Towson,
Owings Mills, Bel Air. Coating to an inch south of that line.

5. UNBelievability factor: On a scale of 1-10, this is a 27. Because it feels like late spring this morning here in Baltimore, and we may approach 60. So snow on the heels of that seems ridiculous.

WHAT ABOUT SCHOOL?

Central PA has the best chance of missing school. I think Baltimore area districts will start with a delay, and then re-evaluate. I really don't think Bay area Maryland schools will call off, but there could be some delays, especially if there is a burst of heavy wet snow right around 5:00 to 6:00 AM.

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO GET READY FOR SPRING.

Results of the fruit cup forecast posted later today.
