Maryland Weather: Dangerously Cold Crows Game Alert Day
BALTIMORE – Alert Day It takes effect in case of dangerously cold wind chills.
Final snow totals from Friday’s storm ranged between 4 and 6 inches in most places across central and northern Maryland, with widespread totals of 2-3 inches in southeastern areas. The snow has ended and the skies will clear overnight.
As we move forward tonight into Saturday morning, the bigger story will be numbingly cold air, dangerous wind chills, and wet or slushy road surfaces turning icy and slippery. Road chemicals are most effective at 20 to 25 degrees, so even treated roads may still be icy. Wind chills early Saturday morning will be in the single digits.
As for Saturday and Sunday, the weather will be very cold. Wind chills will be a bigger problem Saturday with highs in the low to mid 20s and wind chills will drop into the single digits. That’s why we have a warning day in effect for Saturday. If you’re heading to a RAVENS game on Saturday, dress extra warm! You will need every purple layer you can find. Please also stay hydrated and take breaks inside your car with the heat on if it is in the back. The less exposed your skin is, the better for you.
Lows Saturday night and Sunday will be in the low teens.
Sunday will also be windy and cold, but not as intense as Saturday. Sunshine will carry temperatures into the lower 30s. Wind chills will be in the teens and 20s. A gradual thaw occurs Monday and Tuesday with highs in the mid 30s on Monday and low 40s on Tuesday.
A series of disturbances will head in that direction starting Tuesday night and continuing through next Friday. These will bring us rounds of rain, rain and fog. In addition to the chances of rain and snowmelt, we will see milder weather. Unusually mild by late week with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
