Winter Strikes Back

Winter Strikes Back

3:50 PM 3/4 - FINAL SNOWFALL PROJECTIONS & STORM SCENARIOS BELOW




TIMING – Rain will move in with higher intensity this evening. start to mix with sleet for the NW counties around 10 PM-1 AM, then transition to all snow around 1 AM-4 AM. 
  • The metros will mix with sleet from 1AM-4AM and transition to all snow by 4AM-7AM with heavy snow possible across the region by daybreak. 

ACCUMULATIONS – We expect light sleet accumulations overnight, then around 5-8” of snow north of route 50. South of there, expect lesser totals. Roads will be hazardous across much of the Baltimore/DC Metro early Thursday morning, continuing through the day as temperatures drop. 



TEMPERATURES – Hovering in the lower 30s while we transition tonight, getting into the upper 20s early Thursday, mid 20s by midday, then rapidly plummeting to the lower teens overnight. 



BUST SCENARIOS – As with any forecast, there is a significant amount of uncertainty with this system. The last two years, we’ve had snow events in early March that did not live up to expectations. This system actually bears a lot of similarity to March 3rd, 2014. 



  • BAILING TO A BACHATA (20%) – The prime bust scenario would be a slow change-over to sleet and snow overnight would mean more water on the ground, warmer ground temperatures, and less snow. The cold will still come, but just a few hours later than what we expect could allow us to escape the worst of the impacts from this one. Less time in the snow means less snow falls, and less snow sticks, and most regions would fall more in the 3-5” range, struggling to get to the lower end. 
  • GOING "BIG KAHUNA" (20%) – Conversely, if we have a fast change-over to snow, and limited sleet, then much of the region is all snow well before daybreak. This allows for a burst of accumulating snow to whiten the ground again before sunrise, with ample moisture falling all as snow. This scenario could cause some people to receive over our 8” high end, with 8-10” common across the region.

11:30 AM 3/4 - UPDATED SNOWFALL TIMING GRAPHIC & OVERVIEW
  • Latest computer models including the European, GFS, NAM and others beginning to indicate a longer duration of snowfall on Thursday than first anticipated. Original ideas south of I-76 in PA to southern Maryland was snow ending by early afternoon then clearing.
  • New scenario being considered: (from central VA to southeastern PA) - a changeover of sleet/snow  to all snow by 5 AM, with all heavy snow from 6 AM to 12 PM, then light to moderate snow remainder of the afternoon, tapering after 4 PM. See Columbia, MD NWS hourly weather grid for timing in a representative location
  • This setup would significantly impact the AM and PM commute, whereas earlier ideas had more of just an AM impact with some inprovement toward the PM commute.

3:30 AM 3/4 - TEAM STATEMENT & MAP ON STORM SCENARIOS

SCENARIO A - THE ALL SNOW BIG KAHUNA (60%)   
  • Heavy rain mixes with sleet late Wednesday evening and transition to snow from NW to SE starting around 10pm and reaching the Bay by 3AM. 
  • Then, several hours of heavy, accumulating snow until Thursday morning with temperatures dropping into the 20s. 
  • By the early afternoon, this scenario would bring a significant (4+”) snowfall region-wide. Some areas could see up to 10” of snow north and west of the 95 corridor.
SCENARIO B - THE BACK-AND-FORTH BACHATA (40%)
  • This scenario would occur if the front stalls further north and cold air has a harder time moving in. Rain would continue falling through the evening mixing with sleet late at night. 
  • Then the transition to snow would occur Thursday morning from 3AM to 8AM. Snowfall would still be disruptive to the morning commute, but not quite to the high totals expected in Scenario A. 
  • Most places could still get up to a few inches for the metros, and maybe reaching the “significant” criteria north and west of the cities.
CURRENT PRECIPITATION TIMELINE FOR AREAS NORTH OF THE BAY BRIDGE
(Note: A revised timeline to be posted around Noon today)

INTELLICAST REGIONAL RADAR

4:00 PM 3/3 - OVERVIEW OF HAZARD TIMING & BASIC IMPACTS for the next 3 days for the Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic and Delmarva Regions. 
  • OVERNIGHT: Sleet and freezing rain this evening for areas south of I-76 transition to all rain by evening and continue into the daybreak hours as temperatures rise above 32 F by  midnight. 
  • WEDNESDAY: Moderate to heavy rain with temperatures in the 40s will lead to widespread snowmelt, runoff and some creek, low-lying and basement flooding.
  • WED NIGHT INTO THU: Rain begins mixing with sleet and snow in the evening, changing to heavy snow after midnight. Periods of heavy snow and snow-covered roads likely for the Thu AM commute. Daytime Thu temps in 20s drop to low teens overnight.



EPISIODE I: TUESDAY ICE ASSAULT

3:30 AM 3/3 - The first hit of a triple-header event arrives this afternoon along and east of the I-81 corridor, as snow and sleet around noon today transitions to light freezing rain between 3:00-5:00 PM before turning to rain overnight into Wednesday. 

The Precipitation Projection below for 1:00 AM Eastern Time Wednesday shows ice transitioning to rain in Maryland west of the Bay, while holding on in central Pennsylvania into southern New York and New England.


EPISODE II: WEDNESDAY RAIN REBELLION


Freezing rain on Tuesday night transitions to rain into Wednesday AM for most locations south of I-80, becoming heavy at times with 1" of liquid possible in daytime. Cold front will press east as moisture plume streams northeast from Gulf of Mexico. Overnight Wednesday into Thursday, rain will quickly flip to heavy wet snow by daybreak. Map below denotes liquid equivalent for the period 7 AM Tuesday to 7 AM Thursday.

EPISODE III: THURSDAY SNOW WAR

Here is the current thinking from 3 different models.

1. Canadien Model has Maryland in a widespread 6-8 inches.

2. European Model has a spread of 6-10 inches with the heavier amounts being north and west of I-95.

3. GFS Model has a spread from 6-12 inches with 10-12 inches in central maryland to the east all the way to the shore. This model gives less snow to the west and south west. ***This looks least likely to me but I hope for the heavier amounts****

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

Thanks Mike for the breakdown. I still like 5 to 10 regionwide as an early call with an emphasis on the high end of that range . Tomorrow once all the final data is in we can fine tune. Very juicy and potentially explosive event. Minimum is 5, max ceiling is 15. 5 to 10 at this point is the most reasonable expectation.

Jess said...

Is there any chance that the temperature could hover around low 30s tomorrow? It looks like its forecasted to be around low 40s, but this system seems unpredictable..

Amy said...

Having a hard time believing that it will be 40+ tomorrow.

Amy said...

Having a hard time believing that it will be 40+ tomorrow.

kyleZ said...

It's 50 degrees in Garrett county Maryland at an elevation of 3000' moutains seem to be keeping the warm air out for know we will see what happens overnight.

Rufus said...

Be careful on walks and driveways. Hubby and I are leaving in morning for Edinboro where the youngest goes to college. Will post while we are up there. Hey Julee! Hey is Terp still around?

Be safe.

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

Jess,

Anything can happen in the world of weather. Temps will be around 40 with rain. This system is well modeled, so there is increased confidence in a major snow event. I think either side of 10 inches is reasonable based on all reliable data. If things change we will let all know our thoughts. Pretty remarkable consensus on a major snow beat down.

BioPat said...

I am so looking forward to seeing a significant snow. I know many find it a tremendous burden, others an inconvenience but I feel like those of us here are in constant pursuit of the perfect winter storm set up and so love chasing it through the end result.
At this point in the year so many systems have exhausted their snow days I see a petition to the State in the works. Hopefully, the State will be generous as the schools are in a bind being almost forced to make their calls for a multitude of small events due for safety and to avoid potential lawsuits for not following reasonable care. I think Andy could speak much better than I to the legal issues. But the point is if schools are constantly going to be facing this dilemma and have to beg the State to forgive day used wouldn't it make more sense to pad the number of days to avoid the mess? Schools spend far too many days using time off for full professional days where teachers only attend 1/2 day and spend far too much time devoted to conferences that could be better handled in a different format that does not impact class time. Just sayin' as we face the potential of losing 2 more days of school this week.

kyleZ said...

It's good if you're senior biopat

BioPat said...

So true kylez. My daughter graduated in 2010; at graduation one of the speakers made reference to the number of snow days stating,"It's a good year to be a senior". So one could perhaps add that note at commencements this year in Maryland as well.

Morpheus said...

I want the big snow storm as much as anyone else...but over the 5 years of moving to the lowlands of Bowie (From the higher lands of Balt. County) A degree or two difference in temp. mean rain, rain, rain down here. So with all that, what is the confidence for a significant snow for us lowlanders?








Westsidehideaway said...

It's 11am on the Westside. Do you know where your winter weather is??

Morpheus said...

11 am?

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

I'm sold on a general 8-12 inch snowfall for the greater Baltimore Washington area. Impressive consistency in guidance. Watches should go to WINTER STORM WARNINGS around lunch. MAJOR SNOWSTORM seems very likely. As we get closer let's see what short term guidance brings.

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

If we can have some convective banding which is a strong possibility then wherever that may pop someone could pull 15 inches. That's why short term guidance will be helpful.

kyleZ said...

Thanks Andy hope someone gets a foot.

kyleZ said...

Winter storm warnings can't wait for this thing to get cranking.

Rufus said...

Winter Storm Warning this am @ 4:51. 38* Leaving snow removal to the two eldest. Told them they have got to have a path cleared and the ramp cleared for their brother so he can get in the house with the wheelchair. I will miss being home during the storm enjoy and be safe.

Amy said...

Bring it on! My seniors are ecstatic and hoping there is not enough time to clear the lots and sidewalks for Friday. Biopat- here here! Why do I need conferences when all the grade info you need is online? Contact me if you are concerned. Our PD is so poor it's a total waste of time, cancel all we have for the rest of the year. Rethink next year to 3 hour early dismissals to get it in but not lose days.

Stores will be a mess this afternoon and evening so plan accordingly. Myself, I'm getting paint from home dept to make the best of being such at home.

Stay safe and be smart everyone. I can't wait to check in tomorrow morning.

Edwin Guevara said...

Not a big fan of Scenario B. Come on Scenario A, get your crap together. One last REAL Hurrah before spring. No regrets!

Dollar Flipper said...

I feel like a little kid right now. It's going to snow the whole day?!?! Bringing my laptop home and hoping for a doozy!

BioPat said...

Well, here we are once again. I have prepared my classes as best I can giving them plenty of work to get them through the next 2 days of no school. In addition I will be writing some snow day flipped assignments where they will be watching some online videos to help them understand the material. It is extra work but it doesn't put such a void in the learning pattern. With grades closing the 20th for the 3rd quarter we have to push ahead.
I am as prepared as I can be and hope everyone else has taken the appropriate actions as well. Like Amy indicated I am sure the grocery stores are mobbed right about now. Don't folks understand we'll be mobile by Saturday at the latest? The mindset for snowfall never ceases to amaze me, but I guess the confirmation is watching people try to drive in the rain let alone snow!
I am so looking forward to the blog over the next 30 hours. Love to hear all the input from everyone. Enjoy powderhounds!!

365 Dresses said...

I have jury duty tomorrow in Baltimore City. I sure hope it is cancelled before I get down there, and then have to struggle to get home! Normally, I wouldn't even have to consider going out in the stuff---I could just enjoy from inside.

Adnoh said...

Bring on the snow. I hope this thing gets going earlier than expected so we can get these snow totals up.

What is the chance that this storm will morph to rain like the Snowquester of March 2013? The hype was about the same, and the set-up for the storm about the same...

Wanting lots of snow but feeling cynical...

Kate

365 Dresses said...

My jury duty number did NOT come up! Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!!

So much for mid 40s near 50 barely reached 40 in harford.

I said this yesterday.

Mike Cheuvront said...
Looked at some modeling this morning and it seems there may be a real battle to root out the warm air quickly in central and southern parts. Right now most models have most of the accumulating snow more north. I hope this is wrong for all concerned. It has dropped further south from the model runs yesterday but is not as far south as it needs to be for all. I would be cautious at this time about getting real excited until further model runs zero in on the timimg of the cold air in conjunction with how much precip there was left to get through.

3/3/15, 8:56 AM

I left Glen Burnie it was 45 degrees. I live in the highlands and when I got home to Manchester it was 43.

We will see. I am with Kate. Feeling skeptical and cynical. Been let down and disappointed too many times.

kyleZ said...

Andy is the 8-12 still on or is less anticipated.

BioPat said...

Catonsville held 42 - 43 degrees all day once the sun(?) was up and it has now dropped to 39. Just ran out to get some beer and the rain hitting the windshield had some sleet mixed with it. A bit early but with the fog forming I would guess we're seeing a change in air temperature.

Foots going with 5-8, JB has 6+, Dt has 9-12 for Cent MD if we don't get slammed then I'm done with winter for a long time.

Mike Cheuvront said...

Kylez------who or what is Dt?

Westsidehideaway said...

43 degrees in West Bmore at 7pm.

Amy said...

Trying to convince hubby that work tomorrow is a bad idea. I'm hoping he capitulates, and works from home. Or he needs to take a sleeping bag to the office in Towson.

kristia35 said...

DT is wxrisk, no?

kyleZ said...

Cmon foots lowering from 5-8 to 3-6 more sleet or delayed front? Yea Mike Dave Tolleris from Wxrisk he can be annoying but he knows his weather.

BioPat said...

Baltimore County already closed for Thursday

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

I am in the 8 to 12 camp. With southern stream dynamic systems that produce convective banding the Euro and Ukmet have proven to be better tools in such set ups.

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

Either way this is nowcast time aside from some short term models. Enjoy the storm! Almost all models are wrong with the details all the time. I pick the most reliable data and lean on it as much as possible in the right circumstances. This storm will be fun to watch, but very dangerous to attempt to drive in. Enjoy the snow day and let's see how it unfolds!

kyleZ said...

Andy do you think thundersnow is possible.

Westsidehideaway said...

Still holding at 41 degrees here. Rain and fog. 43 degrees in Hagerstown. C'mon front. Push through!!

ravensbbr said...

Ice Station NE CC reporting in. All personnel accounted for and bunkered down. Engaging libation dispenser. Will report in AM.

Good night, and good luck.

:-P

Rodger That, Ravens.

kristia35 said...

^^haha. I'm @38 near Kingsville. Stay warm, all.

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

Kyle,

Absolutely! Clash of arctic air and tropical moisture will make for an interesting morning. Really fun system to track. Storm is well forecast and advertised. Based on NWS WARNINGS and timing anyone who attempts to drive is risking life and limb, and therefore the region will shut down. Most will enjoy a snow day. Radar looks great, and let's see if the European models continue to win the day as they have with southern stream systems!

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

I'm about 4 miles above White Hall Baltimore County and Norrisville Harford County. Down to 37.2

Amy said...

Anne arundel county just threw in the towel. Two school districts down, who's next?

kyleZ said...

Thanks Andy Im gonna try to get it on video it truly is one of the coolest things I've ever seen in my life.

kyleZ said...

IF this rain was snow right it'd be kahuna of the century it is absolutely pouring outside.

Anthony Foppiano said...

I am fearing that that down here in Southern Calvert County we may be looking at a bust. After getting down to near 41 degrees at 7 PM, it is now back up to 51. I don't get it, where is this warm air coming from? The longer it stays warm, the less snow will stick. I am still pulling for it, but have fun up north.

NeedaSnowday said...

Balt city, HoCo jumpin in the pool!

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

I know many question the bullish 8 to 12 calls as the GFS was more stogy than the Euro or Ukmet. Well GFS just collapsed and agrees with the Euro model and shows a general 8 plus through the region. I like the 8 to 12 number.

playastyle said...

@andy, Southern York County Pa.

How does Howard CO and PG CO look on your maps? im being picked up tommorow for work so im still having a few hahhaahah.

Wisconsin Native said...

I don't really see this snow happening as it's 72 in Honolulu right now. But seriously, there's a cold front that hasn't completely gotten here yet and when it does things aren't going to warm up. Most likely the most significant drops will occur once most of us head to bed or the alcohol knocks us out. Enjoy the snow in the morning this is not the same as the Snowquestration of 2013.

Flame said...

Wisconsin, want snow? Go climb a mountain. I hear that 18-24 inches are expected up there at big summit.

Morpheus said...

Towson University threw in the towel at 4:55.

JB put the burst zone right between DC and Annapolis...I am in it and smiling from ear to ear with prospect of possibly being in the bulls eye - even with a later turn over.

Antony - check out Justin Burks blog, he has upped southern MD!

Here is the wild part, if my area is not going to switch to snow until around 9 am and the meet of the storm goes through noon. JB has me in the 6-10 inch zone...does that mean I could expect something like 3 inches per hour? Am I doing the math/timing right???

Morpheus said...

Everyone go to bed? Andy is 2-3 inches per hour a atmospheric possibility?

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

Morph,

I think we see 2 inch per hour rates near lunch. I have heard of rates that were 4 to 5 inch per hour rates in heavy lake effect. I'm just sitting back and enjoying this one. Get your snow fix now as the offseason is long! All global models agree on a 6 to 10 inch snowfall with near record cold. Can't ask for a better set up especially in March. I will check out the Euro for curiosity but with such agreement on a major snow it is now cast time.

Morpheus said...

Thanks Andy - I am in full snow fix mode. I consider this storm to be a season bonus for us warm lowlanders!

Butch Dynomite said...

I like the way this event stretched winter a bit...kinda like a wildcard team winning in the first round...probably not going to the super bowl but extending the season with some hail Marys. I got back late from a school function and seemed to pick up something similar to the bug a few of you had a week back. Alas no ginger root ...maybe make do with lemon and charred oak . Not sleeping till cold at least starts decent. Temps fluctuating from site to site in my area.

Westsidehideaway said...

It's late night here on the Westside. 39 degrees at BWI. Radar is showing gradual change to snow getting close. But it is not really raining here. Don't know why, but I am getting a bad feeling that this may be a bust storm. Okay. I'll stop worrying. Back to bed and get up in a few hours to see what is happening.

kyleZ said...

I swear if that's a dry slot over Virginia? im gonna die.

kyleZ said...

Can't have a snowstorm in Maryland without a dry slot I guess back to bed this second part is really gonna have some decent rates to even reach 6 inches in skeptical at this point.

kyleZ said...

We just waisted every bit of precip here in harford in this round finally just got towards freezing and Bam dry slot still looks juicy towards the west though.

Amy said...

Any idea when precip will start in the area? I'm in pasadena and it's barely dripping outside let alone snow.

Westsidehideaway said...

Snow/sleet/rain in West Baltimore at 6:15am.

The SE Balto Cnty observation facility is open in Edgemere. A lull in any precip and an errie quietness noted.

Loosend said...

LOL Ice pellets hitting the house just now and air is noticably cooler than an hour ago.

Flame said...

My big worry is that many will be fooled by current conditions and drive to work, only to find themselves trapped and unable to return home. Or worse, in an accident or just trapped in car somewhere.

kyleZ said...

Big fat flakes in harford and it covered quickly.

Amy said...

Sadly, not all bosses are understanding about weather conditions that are yet to develop. My husband was stuck going into work in Towson and we live in Pasadena. We have back up plans should be get stuck there, but not sure how many will go out thinking it's a busy and be surprised by lunch.

Leslie said...

Steady snowfall in New Market. Everything is covered. SO pretty!

Mike Cheuvront said...

Report...I left home in Manchester CC 30* 1-2 inches on the ground and snowing hard.

Got to the end of route 30 and 795South and it was still snowing but temp had risen to 32* still snowing.

Got to the end of 795 and 695 nothing on the ground. Snow/Sleet/Rain 32*.....

Got to Glen Burnie 32-34* Snow/Sleet/alittle rain..Nothing on the ground..

Ravensbbr--Glad I got the Kubota for this heavy stuff----

Ground is warm down south. Mid-Upper 40's yesterday. Sun Angle late morning into afternoon also will not help accumulations.

Doubting ground truth on accumulations for reasons outlined in earlier posts from central Md and south for over 6".

Man I hope I'm wrong!! I want everyone to get heavy snow. I do not doubt the highlanders are toast.

Butch Dynomite said...

That was a quiklck changeover. Better a little late then never . Steady snow now in Parkville.

ravensbbr said...

Thanks for the report in, Mike C., stay safe out there as well as everyone else who had to go in.

Amy, short sighted bosses suck. Pennywise, pound foolish. If it's too nasty weather-wise out there for kids to go to school, it's just logical that it's too nasty for most of us to go out and risk our necks as well, IMHO. Why do people insist on getting a (potential) days work from a trusted employee but risk losing that employee for an extended time (or forever) by risking their workforce?

Flame said...

Turned over very quickly in Greenbelt, and falling hard. Covered in matter of minutes.

Andy, Southern York County Pa said...

I think the general 8 to 12 idea is in track. I think where the heaviest banding sets up someone could see 14. Enjoy your snow day and the March mini kahuna! Long over due.

*****WELL SAID RAVENSBBR****** My wife and I both are looked down upon if we miss...Aspecially the wife. Just praying we are all okay.

Moderate snow in Glen Burnie!

Thanks Andy! I hope so for all just not us highlanders.

Westsidehideaway said...

Busses are still moving in West Bmore but let's see for how long. Working from home. Coming down at a great clip now. Zsa Zsa the Cat is pissed once again. Stuck inside again. She is definitely Not a Powderhound.

Brian carlberg said...

This storm is definitely NOT a bust. I'm liking the 8+ potential as well.

Amy said...

Apparently retirement accounts are on the necessary worker list. ground covered in half inch of snow in about 45 minutes in pasadena. Complete turn over to snow in that time as well.

ravensbbr said...

1/4 mile vis. here in the highlands. Easily 3"+ down already, wind hitting hard from the NW.

Rufus said...

SNow Day and I'm missing it just cloudy and 11 up here in Edinboro. This is the most snow I have seen up here I would say a good 3 feet, this is Jacob's third winter here. We will begin the trek back home tomorrow late morning. Enjoy the snow be safe!

There is no strict rule that official gatherings should always be formal. Instead, engaging the guests is a lot more important and steps really should be taken to make corporate events a bit more entertaining.

cabled weather stations collection, there required many weather related gadgets to establish a cabled weather station. You will find them in a reputed weather stationery shop collection, they should be all branded and from genuine manufacturer.
