BALTIMORE (WJZ) – The forecast of a snowfall over the weekend went according to the “scenario”.
At the same time, it was an impressive snow event, especially since temperatures in the Baltimore area hit 60 degrees on Saturday.
Total snowfall ranges from one to two inches inside the ring road, to four inches in parts of Carroll County.
Weather didn’t throw any curveballs.
Now, the skies are clearing, there’s a slight breeze, and the Baltimore area is having a chilly day.
There was a snowfall one to three inches thick. For the most part, snow accumulates on unpaved surfaces.
As for roads and sidewalks, they’re just wet or mushy. That’s partly due to the very mild temperatures that have blanketed the area over the past few days and the blazing sun. Those things actually heat up the concrete and the asphalt.
With clear skies and a little breeze, roads and sidewalks can dry out quickly.
But be aware that anywhere standing water or mud can still be dangerous as there will be an overnight freezing process.
As temperatures drop into the 20s closer to the city and teen to suburban, any wet and untreated surface will freeze, resulting in a slippery condition.
As a result, WJZ will keep the Warning Date unchanged.

So be careful when coming home from Super Bowl watching parties and take note of the weather tomorrow morning.
Even so, looking at the seven-day forecast suggests a big start. Once tomorrow’s cold subsides, the temperature will rise.
On Tuesday, the highs will return to 40, and Thursday’s temperature is forecast at just 70 degrees.
