Quick Update For Thursday Travel

An extension of the previous blog post on the chance of snow for Thursday, December 26th.

I mentioned in my previous blog post the chance of snow tonight. Here is a quick updated look at  the forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning...

Already, a light snow band pushed through areas of Ohio tonight. This snow was associated with an upper level disturbance and is not the main snow maker. Rather, an approaching vorticity max for later tonight/ early tomorrow morning will bring the chance of spreading snow to the region. 

The above image is an output from the NAM model for the 7 AM hour tomorrow morning. Note the vorticity max pushing into Ohio. This is supporting the chance for the the next band of snowfall which is expected. 

Overall, we will see a few flurries in the river cities, with an inch or two possible into northern portions of West Virginia and Maryland. Areas of S. Ohio may see up to half an inch of snowfall. 

Road conditions will be slick in areas of the tri-state region tomorrow morning. If you are heading to Annapolis for the Military Bowl, be alert for slick conditions in Northern Maryland too.
