Round 2: Another snowstorm blankets region
Once again, those who weren’t given a snow day had to endure a tricky commute Wednesday morning, with only a few of the main thoroughfares treated and plowed and most neighborhood streets still snow-packed.
Weather watcher Deb Buchanan recorded 6¼ inches of snow at her home on Gwynn’s Island, which she said was about average across the area. She reported Wednesday morning’s low temperature at 15 degrees with a wind chill of minus 1.
The National Weather Service reported 4.3 inches of snowfall as of 6 a.m. Wednesday at White Marsh from a trained spotter.
The heaviest snowfall came between 5 p.m. Tuesday and midnight Wednesday. By 1 a.m. Wednesday, Buchanan said the snow had begun to taper off.
Virginia Department of Transportation spokesperson Kelly Hannon reported road conditions as being a little worse this time around than they were last week.
