The storm that dropped a coating of snow and slush on the ground in Baltimore — and more snow in the northern suburbs — has left the region. No significant precipitation is expected for the rest of the week.
A winter weather advisory for northern Baltimore and Harford counties expired at 4 p.m. Wednesday, and the region should stay dry on Thursday. There may be some flurries Friday morning but no accumulation, according to Brian Lasorsa, a National Weather Service meteorologist.
“We’re pretty much done,” he said. “Everything is done. It’s just kind of breezy and chilly.”
The normal daytime temperature this time of year is 51 degrees, but the temperature has been hovering in the low 40s all day and won’t likely get above mid-40s on Thursday or Friday, he said.
That may be a relief to weather-weary parents, whose children were home from schools in several counties that closed or opened late on Wednesday.
A coastal low-pressure system dropped about four to eight inches overnight in the northern parts of the region, and about two to four inches in the city and surrounding area, the weather service reported.
About 4,400 homes remained without power Wednesday afternoon, according to Baltimore Gas and Electric. Local and out-of-state crews have been working to restore electricity since a powerful nor’easter came through the area Friday. They have turned power back on in more than 400,000 homes.
