Baltimore (WJZ) – Watches and warnings were issued before the season’s first winter storm arrives Wednesday.
This is not a cut and dry type hint, but definitely exciting!

Meanwhile, a Winter Storm Watch was issued for the following counties from 7 a.m. Wednesday to Thursday morning: along with the city of Baltimore – Sicily, Harford, Howard, Montgomery.
When does the snow fall?
The first flakes should be moving by 2pm and a steady frost season will begin.
However, from late afternoon to late Wednesday evening, warm winds will blow from the Atlantic and sleet, frost and rain will form in some parts of central Maryland.
Most areas begin and end with snow, and what happens in the meantime affects the amount of snow you see on Earth on Thursday morning.
Heavy snowfall occurs overnight.
How much snow does it take?
There are some uncertainties to the nail with the mixing scenario.
Exactly how much warm air pulls, how much the mixing line moves west and the duration of mixing. This has a major impact on total snowfall accumulation.
In some parts of the state (north and west) snow can be seen up to the bottom. The northern and western parts of the city expect 6 to 12 inches of snow anywhere. Baltimore City can be a total of 3-6 inches, with areas south and east of the city receiving the most rain, while some can see up to 3 inches of snow.
After a period of transition to a winter mix, most areas turn back to ice as the temperature drops. Our thinking is important for the storm to reach the entire avalanche and affect the journey.
In addition, the low-pressure area is prone to cyclogenesis and becomes more windy.
Therefore, snow blowing and drifting can occur, especially in places that are cold enough to see snow throughout the entire storm event.
The storm will lead to more snow than the 2019-2020 winter; Officially, Baltimore saw less than two inches of snow last winter!
Baltimore city officials provided for residents With a few tips to prepare for the storm.
