WEATHER ALERT | Tracking impactful mix of rain & snow for Wednesday commuting in Maryland

Our next weather-maker is on its way and depending on its timing, track, and how much cold air stays involved, it could mean the first accumulating snow of the season for at least some of us.

The timing on the reliable High Resolution Rapid Refresh Computer Model Futurescan below appears to be starting from anywhere around daybreak Wednesday morning to mid-morning Wednesday morning, then changing to all rain from southeast to northwest through the afternoon.

Therefore, the Wednesday morning commute is in jeopardy of being quite hazardous for some.

For now, our short-rang computer models... which are most reliable... show the least robust snow totals of only a few tenths of an inch (perhaps 1") north and west of Baltimore before a shift to rain. This is depicted on the High Resolution Rapid Refresh model snow output below... which actually had pretty decent hold on the Monday morning snow that occurred.

Meanwhile, the less reliable (at this time frame) GFS American and European Computer Models have a coating for Baltimore and 1-3"/2-4" north and west with a slower changeover to rain.

Overall, the biggest impacts appear to be north and west of the Beltway in any scenario, with just primarily wet roads in the city.

With the likelihood of most accumulating snow falling north and west of Baltimore, even if some snow does fall out of this weather-maker, there is a good likelihood that at BWI, no accumulation will be recorded, meaning that Baltimore officially still will hold on to a snowless winter for now.
