December 5th:
Welcome for some, not for others

8:30 AM EST 12/5/11 | On this stormy, foggy first Monday in December, it is becoming clear the nation will be entering a period of diverse and highly variable weather. The roof-ripping Santa Ana winds continue in California, while the threat of significant snow has nearly covered New Mexico with Winter Storm Warnings. Back east, Flood Warnings blanket the Ohio Valley, which may be replaced by cold weather and wind chill advisories by late week.   

THE DAILY REGIONAL ROUNDUP For access to the latest forecasts from our team in their respective states, please visit the banner tabs above by region: EasternCentral and Western. Several hours of work per day are put in by Senior Advisor Brad Lear  in editing and assuring that our forecaster's reports appear properly on the proper  tab for their region.

REDEFINING DECEMBER 5 For our Eastern readers, this date has been marked in recent years with re-occurring snow. This year, just calm looking but traffic snarling fog was the rule for much of the I-95 corridor this morning. 

As part of our rollout of the new website this week, perhaps this first glimpse of the banner for our new "local zone" focused website will help lift your spirits. More details will be released each day this week about the entire website and when to expect a local zone such as this for your area.

The snow event looks ike it is taking shape for Wednesday Night to Thursday morning.  If trends continue we should see some NWS advisories soon (ie: Special weather statement or Winter Storm Watch fot Northern Baltimore County West and North.  This appears to be a 3-6 event with up to 8 or more in Northern Carroll County into PA.  TIME WILL TELL!

NWS Balt Wash:
<pre>A positively tilted upper-level trough will remain well to our west
Tuesday night. The southern branch of this system is expected to
cutoff into an upper-level low Wednesday before moving through our
region late Wednesday and Wednesday night. This system will continue
to spread precipitation across our area at the same time colder air
will be moving in from the north and west. There will likely be
enough cold air for precipitation to end as a period of snow mainly
from Washington/Baltimore to the north and west. The best chance
for accumulating snow will likely be across the far northern and
western suburbs of Washington/Baltimore into the Shenandoah Valley
and Potomac Highlands. Winter weather headlines may be warranted
across these areas.</pre>
