Maryland Weather: Windy, cold and dry the rest of the day
BALTIMORE – The rain, snow and wintry mix are over as of this morning, but gusty winds and cold weather are coming this afternoon and into this evening.
The fast-moving but powerful storm that broke out overnight and early this morning is quickly approaching its end. The remnants of snow along the eastern shore are about to end. Accumulations from this storm vary greatly depending on where you live. Areas of Carroll County saw up to 4 to 5 inches of snow, while at the same time in Baltimore City several locations received impact. The highest totals were in northern and western Maryland near the Pennsylvania border.
Look for road conditions to quickly improve as the sun rises, winds pick up and temperatures rise into the 40s this afternoon. Winds will be northwesterly at 10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts ranging from 25 to 35 miles per hour.
Skies will be clear tonight as temperatures drop. The lows will drop into the upper 20s and lower 30s. Gusty winds will ease as of this afternoon.
Valentine’s Day will see sunny skies with highs in the mid 40s and more gusty winds. Northwest winds of 10 to 15 mph will gust to 25 mph. Otherwise, it will be a nice, quiet day if you plan to go out on Wednesday evening.
Another cold front will approach our area later Thursday. There will be an increased chance of rain or light showers Thursday night into early Friday morning. This won’t be a major storm by any means, but most of the light rain activity should disappear by Friday morning. Highs Thursday afternoon and Friday will reach the upper 40s.
A weak clipper system will provide the area with some light snow and possibly some rain showers late Friday night into Saturday morning. The light snow will be from a minor, weak system, but could lead to some wet road conditions Saturday morning before the area clears. For now, any accumulation will be light and mainly on grass surfaces.
High temperatures on Saturday will reach the mid 40s with light snow tapering off in the morning. Temperatures on Sunday look to be fairly pleasant for mid-February with highs in the upper 40s.
A large area of high pressure will dominate the weather from late weekend through part of next week. This will help temperatures return to the 50s for most of next week.
