It’s no blizzard, but the first snow accumulation of the 2016-17 winter season is expected to be disruptive.
Meteorologists from the National Weather Service are calling for one to two inches of snow starting after 4 p.m. on Thursday and leading into Friday morning. Forecasts peg the chance for snow at 80 percent.
Even if it’s only a couple inches at most, the timing could make the Friday morning drive a pain for commuters. Drivers should use caution so as to avoid any tragedies like the pileups and deadly truck accident following the first seasonal spell of freezing rain in the area last month.
For Baltimoreans who aren’t driving and just want a change in scenery after a dreary, rainy week, the snow should be a welcome sight. There’s a chance the wintry weather could continue into the weekend thanks to a storm brewing in the Southeast, though meteorologists say that one remains both figuratively and literally up in the air.
