Living in Maryland, residents typically see some unpredictable and random weather events occur. This past Monday was no exception. Being a warm sixty degrees on Sunday, very few realized what was coming. The biggest snowstorm in the Atlantic since 2019 kicked off the new year with a bang.
Areas of Maryland saw more than a foot of snow. On top of that, thundersnow was also reported throughout the state. Thundersnow is simply a thunderstorm with snow instead of rain as the main precipitation that occurs in regions of strong upward motion with the cold sector of an extratropical cyclone.
Hundreds of thousands of people in the Metropolitan region have reported losing power. Both North and South Carolina saw tornado watches go into effect because of the storm. In Maryland, the cold temperatures have heavily affected residents and will continue to throughout the week. These temperatures have caused slick, icy roadways in the Annapolis area.
Freezing temperatures and melting snow cause trouble for homeowners. Ice dams, flooded basements, sump pump failures and frozen pipes are the most common winter-related losses we see.
