Our Date With Destiny

It was this date in 2001 that we set the record High temperature of 75F. Since then, it has marked the first snowfall of the season. Today will mark 5 of the last 6 years. I find this truly fascinating for nothing other than coincidence. Click on the image for a full view.

While this is our first event of the season, and this Snow Advisory affects all of us, I expect the mid day roads to be wet. However, a burst is posts, could make some roads in Carroll and Western Howard Counties slipper. But I expect the main problem to be after 3pm. That's when the snow picks up and the sun goes down. The ride home will be slow.
As of 6am, the models are on target with my forecast, showing this clipper passing to our south. That combined with colder temps locked in place, a little more snow may fall just south along the path of the clipper. Generally I am expecting 1-2 inches for most of us. Here is the overnight model breakdown:
NGM: .16" = 1-2" Snow
AVN: .28" = 3" Snow
NAM: .15 = 1 1/2 " Snow

Now a trip down memory lane. One of our newsroom managers reminded me of the snow angel I did on the air while back at WBAL. That was on the famed December5th back in 2002. Here is some of that coverage below. I have more if you see the tab for Photo and Video Albums above (on full web site)
