Two Chances of Snow MLK Day through Wednesday

The Martin Luther King Holiday will feature increasing clouds with a period of snow flurries during the morning hours east of Washington.  Light snow or flurries may develop across the interstate 95 corridor including DC and Baltimore during the afternoon hours Highs on Monday will remain in the 20s across our region, and any snow flurries could cause slippery conditions on untreated roadways.

The next period of accumulating Snow is likely across our region Tuesday evening continuing into the day on Wednesday as a slow-moving cold front and upper-level jet streak passes through the Mid-Atlantic states.

  • The Ensembles continue to show a great deal of variance in potential snowfall amounts with some individual members dropping around an inch and other members dropping nearly a half-foot.

Mean of all the ensembles above:

  • The most likely solution at this time is that a coastal low will form too far to our east sparing our region from a crippling snowstorm.  The best chance for snowfall amounts over 4″ will once again be south and east of Baltimore and Washington.  However the Tuesday-Wednesday system will need to be monitored closely for any potential shift in track closer to the coast.
