– Winter Storm Warnings continue for the entire state
It may have come in a few hours behind schedule but it appears that the snowfall is behaving as expected. Bands of heavy snow continue to push into the state and heavy snow will fall through the afternoon hours before tapering off late this afternoon or early evening.
Snowfall rates of 1-2″ per hour are likely for the next few hours.
We currently have 2.25″ of snow here in Millersville and reports into the National Weather Service indicate that it is really beginning to pile up, especially north and west of I-95 with the highest report so far being 6.5″ in Carroll county.Storm totals look like they will end up in line with my forecast, with a general 6-10″ likely across northern and north central Maryland, with 4-6″ likely south of there and 2-4″ across the lower eastern shore.
Temperatures have been right around freezing this morning but are beginning to fall into the 20s and will continue to fall through the 20s this afternoon and evening. With a fresh snowpack, record lows are likely tonight with lows falling into the single digits to low 10s by tomorrow morning.
I will have another brief update in a few hours to status the storm and report some more totals.
