Snow forecast busts, sleet still in mix

NOTTINGHAM, MD—The National Weather Service all but admitted that their snowfall forecast for the Baltimore area was a bust on Saturday.

As the morning hours passed by with little to no snow reaching the ground in many areas, the NWS tweeted out a revised forecast showing less than an inch of total accumulation for Baltimore – and that may even be on the high side.

Forecasters did say that sleet and freezing rain were still a risk as the afternoon hours unfolded, and many areas in the NottinghamMD coverage area were reporting that sleet was falling as of 1 p.m.

“Precipitation is moving across the area as temperatures remain near or just below freezing,” the National Weather Service said. “Where it is precipitating, any snow will begin to mix & change to sleet/freezing rain. Use caution this afternoon as untreated surface may be slippery.”
