There is a potential for hazardous commuting conditions for the
Monday morning commute. A period of snow is POSSIBLE (a 40

the Baltimore / Washington metro areas with up to an inch
accumulation on area roads. The area with the highest risk of snow
arriving before rush hour ends is northwest of Interstate 95.

I think the guys who live in a place that won't get anything from this shouldn't be making accumulation predictions....their cranky asses are too biased :hurrbear:

It’s a stat padder for you NW guys no doubt. But I’m not gonna believe a couple 10:1 maps that put down 4-6” in my neck of the woods during the middle of the day with temps generally above freezing. The only thing this has going for it is the cold antecedent temps before precipitation that makes the ground colder than it would normally be. That likely helps some folks for a couple hours late Monday morning

I'm not expecting concrete accumulations but I'm game for some old sleet refreshing. The grass looks like one of Ellenwoods old maps with that translucent gray...I mean i don't live in Fairfax County for gosh sakes

C'mon this is a helluva setup for the lowlands.

The difference between Leesburg and the northwestern tip of Loudoun County is stark.  I still have 100% snow cover with 5-6 inches and 50% cover on my access road.  I drive into Hillsboro and it has all but disapeared.

Yeah Leesburg has had a less than great year...the fact that Sykesville is doing about 5-6" better in what would typically be a similar climate shows how this year is more lat than long for storms.

On paper it doesn't look like anything but occasionally we  get a light to mod event from a otherwise crappy setup :whistle:. It's happened before and tomorrow looks to deliver a nice WWA event for some lowlands . I personally think i83 and east bullseye ( highest qpf max)with places getting 3-4" maby a 5" lollie in nw Harford or Hereford zone or north of  bel air even Down towards Timonium- Towson could do well. Rates look nice and the airmass leading in is fairly legit . I bet Bmore even sees 1-2"
