Arctic air keeps the region stuck in a deep freeze
BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- More arctic air is on the horizon.
After a very cold start to 2018, we'll remain in the deep freeze Tuesday and Wednesday, albeit not quite as brutal. Tuesday expect partly cloudy highs in the mid 20s. On Wednesday, we'll see increasing clouds and highs at about freezing.
Thereafter, a strong coastal storm looks to develop offshore for Wednesday night into Thursday. Right now, both reliable long-range computer models, the European and GFS, call for a more easterly, Atlantic Ocean track. This forecast path gives areas from around I-95 and points west, including Baltimore, just some scattered nuisance snow showers and flurries with the nearest accumulating snow of any consequence over the DelMarVa. This one is worth watching, though, as a jog slightly west of what is currently predicted would lead to a much more major snow around here.
What is a certainty, though, is that another dump of Arctic air will follow the departing storm system for the very end of the week and into next weekend with more single-digit overnight lows and highs struggling to around 20 accompanied by another round of dangerously cold wind chills.
