Friday forecast: Snow early, then windy, cold

A winter weather advisory expired about 9:30 a.m. Friday across the Baltimore area, after flurries fell during the morning commute, according to the National Weather Service.

Cold and windy conditions are expected through the rest of the day, with snow showers possible in the afternoon. Accumulation reports range from a dusting to an inch or more.

Snowfall totals include half an inch at Cylburn Arboretum, 0.8 inches in Catonsville, 0.2 inches in Long Green, 0.7 inches in Severn and 1 inch in Pasadena. Further south in Anne Arundel County, 2.3 inches fell between Davidsonville and Harwood.


Highs are forecast in the lower-30s, but 20 mph winds with 45 mph gusts are expected to bring wind chills into the lower 20s after a cold front passes through early in the morning.

The system is what as known as a clipper, known for fast-moving, light snow showers.


Temperatures should drop below freezing in the evening, with winds easing up but still bringing wind chills in the teens. Overnight lows are expected in the lower 20s.

Saturday brings more temperatures in the 30s with breezy conditions and another chance for snow showers in the evening.

Super Bowl Sunday in Baltimore is expected to reach the lower 40s with lows back down in the 20s.
