The Baltimore region appears likely to escape the brunt of a winter storm forecast to develop this weekend, but some snow could still fall Sunday, meteorologists said. Heavy snow is forecast across North Carolina and southern Virginia from Saturday night to Sunday night, and meteorological models...
Forecasts suggest this Thanksgiving will be Baltimore's coldest since at least 1996, with temperatures expected to struggle to rise above freezing throughout the day. Highs are forecast in the lower 30s, which is close to a record chill for the holiday. A steady 10 mph breeze from the north is...
Baltimore usually gets more than a nine-month break, or about 280 days, between the last snowfall of one winter and the first flakes of the next. But this year, the region couldn't even make it eight months — its shortest break from snow since 1979. As winter lingered into last spring, the last...
It’s official — 2018 is Baltimore's wettest year on record. And the rain keeps coming. By Nov. 15, precipitation at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport surpassed the record 62.66 inches set in 2003, by a couple hundredths of an inch. After downpours Saturday, the total...
On an unexpectedly snowy day Thursday — Baltimore’s snowiest in November since at least 1989 — the region unofficially set a record for its wettest year in the books. As of 5 p.m., an inch of precipitation had fallen at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, enough to surpass...
You can blame a persistently chilly northeast wind for the several inches of snow that fell across Central Maryland on Thursday. It prevented more precipitation from falling as sleet or freezing rain in Baltimore and along Interstate 95. Forecasters had predicted warming air to create a wintry...
November snowfall is relatively common in Baltimore, but usually leaves just a trace of flakes. Thursday’s dose of sustained wintry precipitation was the most the region has seen in November since at least 1989, and the earliest the area has seen measurable snowfall in 22 years. The last time measurable...
On an unexpectedly snowy day, Baltimore unofficially set a record for its wettest year in the books, going back to 1871. As of 5 p.m., enough snow, ice and rain had fallen at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport to surpass an annual precipitation record of 62.66 inches,...
More rain — and potentially some ice — is in the forecast around Maryland this week, potentially enough to set a new record for Baltimore's wettest year. A low-pressure system is forecast to move through the region late Monday into Tuesday. Rain is likely from late Monday evening through early...
