Winter Storm Watch issued as wintry one-two punch approaches

Snow on VehicleWinter isn’t through with the Maryland area quite yet.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for what could potentially be a major snowfall event on Wednesday – and there may be more to come after that.

The first nor’easter of March left many Maryland residents without power and forced many road closures due to downed trees.  Now, a second March nor’easter is preparing to bear down on the region Tuesday night into Wednesday.

The Winter Storm Watch is in effect for northern Baltimore County from Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon.  Significant wet snow is possible with the potential for five inches or more of total accumulation.

There is the possibility of difficult travel conditions during the morning commute on Wednesday. Significant reductions in visibility are possible.

Beyond that, a third nor’easter is expected to develop over the weekend and into next week.  WeatherNation says this third system could produce up to a foot of snow from the Carolinas into New England from Sunday, March 11, to Monday, March 12.

Stay tuned to the National Weather Service for the latest winter forecast details.
