Snow Squalls Possible Sunday; Tuesday Threat Looks Very Light

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) snow squalls that could leave a quick dusting of snow are possible for the area on Sunday.

Per the NWS, “Arctic front will pass through the area on Sunday. Snow squalls will be possible, especially along/north of US-50. Additional advisories are in effect across the Allegheny Front for the snow and sub-zero wind chills Sunday night.”

Snow squalls come through very quickly, but drop heavy snow in a short amount of time. This leads to very low visibility and the possibility for roads to get messy quickly (usually for a short period of time). The threat is for the late morning/afternoon hours. As much as an inch to an inch and a half for area like upper Montgomery County, Frederick County, Howard County, and Carroll County, and as little as no snow is possible (reasonable worst case scenario map below).

The Tuesday threat is currently looking like pretty light snow. The NWS still has the area in the “slight winter storm threat” category, but the picture will get a little clearer tomorrow. It’s not looking very worrisome at this time. We’ll keep you updated on that and the possibility of more snow on Friday.
