Accuweather: Rain but no snow for holiday travel
Twice today I heard rumors of snow in Baltimore for the Thanksgiving weekend. Accuweather says it ain't so.
Brian Edwards, a meteorologist with the State College, Pa.-based forecasting service, said most of Maryland is not expected to see anything more disruptive than rain through the Thanksgiving weekend. He said there could be Great Lakes-effect snow to the north and west but that temperatures ii Maryland are not expected to drop to a level where snow or ice can form.
Edwards said the good news for travelers extends all the way up the Interstate 95 corridor at least as far as northern New England. Travel along alternate routes through Northeast Pennsylvania should also be clear except for rain, he said. Nor should travelers along Interstate 81 in Virginia encounter snow, he said.
Travelers to Pittsburgh and other western Pennsylvania destinations should probably have a snow-free trip to their destination, he said. But Accuweather predicts they could run into wintry weather on the way home, particularly in the Laurel Highlands.
And surprise of surprises, Garrett County could have snow by late that weekend.
Edwards notes that this is a long-range prediction and that conditions could change. But for now, the rumors of snow remain nothing more than that.
