Get ready for blast from the past snow flurries may visit this week

November 10, 1996|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Baltimore area residents will feel a blast of cold air and perhaps see snow flurries over the next few days as a Canadian cold front moves into the Eastern seaboard, according to the National Weather Service.

Allegany and Garrett counties may get 2 to 4 inches of snow by Tuesday, forecasters said.

Temperatures in the mid- to upper 40s are predicted for today, with daytime temperatures tomorrow dipping into the high 30s, forecasters said.

Last year, the Baltimore area had 1 inch of snowfall in November and a seasonal total of 72.5 inches.

Meteorologists said they don't expect this year's snowfall to be on par with last winter's heavy storms.

"It would be a really unusual event if we got more snow this year than last," said Calvin Meadows, a meteorological technician. "It's going to take a lot to beat last year's seasonal snow total, which beat the storm of the century in 1993."
