Thursday is shaping up to be an interesting weather day across Maryland. A fast moving storm will rapidly develop a hundred miles south of the state allowing for some snow to move into the area. The national weather service in Baltimore has issued a winter storm watch for Anne Arundel County and Howard county effective Thursday afternoon into Thursday night.

Concerns!

There are many concerns with this storm and that is primarily LOCATION! A sharp cutoff is anticipated with this storm and any wobble north or south would change the forecast almost immediately. Right now our computer forecast models indicate central and southern Anne Arundel county seeing a plowable snow event with a few inches of snow expected. Baltimore city is on the edge of a few flurries to a few inches of snow by Thursday night!

Our Exclusive ABC 2 RPM model shows a dramatic cut off of snow!

Storm Time Line:

1pm - 3pm Light snow and rain arrives

3pm - 6pm Moderate snow bands push into southern Maryland. Light rain/snow continues over Baltimore

6pm-10pm Moderate snow bands push into Anne Arundel, Howard, and Queen Anne's county.

10pm-4am Accumulating snow slowly moves east and out to sea.

How Much: LOCATION IS KEY Subject to change greatly !
