Snowfall On The Way Friday Into Saturday

A period of light snow from a clipper system will arrive during the late overnight hours on Friday through the early morning hours Saturday. A fast moving area of low pressure from the Northern Plains will race just to the south of us through southern Virginia bringing a round of light snowfall accumulations. At this time it looks to be a nice spread of 1-3 inches of snowfall from areas of the Maryland Eastern Shore on northward. There maybe some localized heavier bands that could see 3 to 4 inches.

As far as travel impacts for the morning hours on Saturday, accumulations of snowfall will be mostly on elevated and grassy surfaces. Road temperatures are on the warmer side and given temperatures will be marginal. This will be a wet snow in nature which could lead to a few slick spots here and there. Snowfall will taper off just after sunrise and will likely start melting throughout the day when temperatures rise above 32 degrees and the higher angle sun.
