Winter strikes back: Snow, wind, cold coming tomorrow

It sure doesn’t feel like it now with temperatures in the 50s, but the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for snow, wind and very cold weather on Tuesday.

Accumulating between 4 and 6 inches, snow will start in the morning and be heaviest during the middle of the day before tapering off in the evening.

Temperatures, meanwhile, will plummet into the teens tomorrow night and into the single digits early Wednesday.

Below Zero Wind Chill

Winds, escalating to 15 mph tomorrow with gusts of 25 mph, will create wind chills in the single digits Tuesday, dropping to minus 10 overnight.

Falling, blowing, and drifting snow is expected to cause hazardous travel and walking conditions across the Baltimore region tomorrow, especially in the late afternoon and evening commutes. The extreme cold could cause frostbite, so dress appropriately.

To avoid broken water pipes, homeowners are advised to keep a small stream of tap water running overnight tomorrow.

Below-freezing temperatures will continue in the area through Friday, but no additional snow is forecast.
