Wintry mix expected in the Nottingham area on Thursday

Winter Weather SnowThere is a very good chance that, by Friday, 2018 will be the wettest year ever recorded in the Baltimore area.

The National Weather Service reports that, with 0.60 inches of rainfall recorded on Tuesday at BWI Airport, Baltimore is up to 61.68 inches of precipitation for the year. While still sitting at number 3 for the wettest year on record, we are now less than one inch shy of the all-time record of 62.66 inches observed in 2003.

By the end of this week, that record may be broken as a wintry system approaches the Mid-Atlantic.

A mix of wintry precipitation is expected during the Thursday morning commute, potentially leading to slow travel and delays.

The precipitation is likely to start out as snow, then mix with sleet and change over to rain mid-day. There is a possibility the precipitation could change back over to snow before the system winds down on Friday morning.

A general one to two inches of slushy accumulation is possible.
