The National Weather Service at Baltimore/Washington has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for central Maryland effective from 10 p.m. on Thursday through 10 a.m. on Friday.
A mixture of rain and snow will overspread the area on Thursday evening, but the precipitation will change over to all snow overnight and continue into the morning hours on Friday. Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches can be expected in Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington, except 2 to 4 inches south of Annapolis. Snow may cover roads overnight and through the early morning hours on Friday, but the high March sun angle combined with temperatures above freezing after sunrise will result in improving road conditions even while the snow is still falling. The heaviest snow will fall from 2 a.m. through 8 a.m. and during this time winds could be gusty from the east as the area of low pressure intensifies off the coast of North Carolina and moves out to sea.
Here is the exclusive weather forecast for Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington D.C.:
Thursday: Mostly sunny early, then more clouds with a high in the low 40s. Thursday Night: Snow developing, mainly after midnight. The low will be around 30. Friday: Snow in the morning, then gradual clearing. Total snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible, except 2 to 4 inches south and east of Annapolis. The high will be in the mid 30s.
