The Calm Before . . .

 A storm brewing.

24 Hour Weather Forecast

A Nor'easter potentially laying its bullseye right atop the Baltimore-Washington region.

Actually we are looking at two storms--one Sunday to Monday and then another. The scary part, there are no projections yet for the Monday to Tuesday storm which could be developing into the Nor'easter.

Chris reported that Costco was packed with shoppers loading up on supplies yesterday win advance of the storms. 

This morning, however, as I look outside it is calm. The sunrise portends a fine day. I am not excited at all about the prospect of multiple inches of snow. 

From the WBAL TV weather crew, as of this morning here is the forecast:

Chief Meteorologist Tom Tasselmyer said it's going to be a tricky forecast because the West Coast storm will have to move across the country, transfer energy to the coast, and another storm will have to form and track over Maryland to bring snow.

Meteorologist Ava Marie says snow will begin to develop some time after 6 a.m. Sunday, accumulating to as much as 3 to 6 inches by Monday morning -- and that's just part one.

Ava said there will be a mixing of sleet and rain, especially to the south of Baltimore, starting Sunday night into Monday.

Part two comes with more snow -- and ice -- possible Monday into Tuesday morning, with locations and amounts to be determined.

I highlighted the potentially frightening part of the forecast. They do not have a clue!

It will be like days before satellites and weather forecasts--we will just have to see what comes our way. this will be fun.
