Tuesday Morning Snow 'Dusts' the Region
It was quick. Did you see it?
The first snow of 2012 deposited a delicate dust late Tuesday morning over the Baltimore/D.C. region, following a warmer than average November and December.
The Washington Post’s weather blog, Capital Weather Gang, reported on its Twitter feed Tuesday morning that snow showers were occurring on the Baltimore and Howard county line. BWI also reported show showers Tuesday morning on Twitter.
Eldersburg Patch already has a photo of the first snowfall in 2012, reporting that there was a bit of snow before 10 a.m. as temperatures dropped.
The National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook Tuesday morning for the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. region, where the light snow may have caused some icy spots on roads.
The snow was expected to last through noon, according to the National Weather Service.
This “hint” of winter came after a warmer than average November and December, which vexed ski resorts across the state during the holiday season, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s for the rest of the week, but are expected to reach a high of 54 on Saturday.
