Tonight, forecasters are saying could be the Eastern Shores first snow of the year. An area of low pressure offshore will create breezy and wet conditions. Northeast winds of 15 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph, will elevate tide levels. A cold rain will be likely, off and on, for much of the day. Later, as colder air moves in from the west, rain may mix with wet snow. The best chances for snow will occur on the northern part of the Shore.
Traditionally, the Eastern Shore does not see much snow during the month of December. The lowest temperature recorded on the Eastern Shore on December 5th was 20 degrees in 2000 and the highest was 71 degrees in 2001. Although still a way away, forecasters are predicting snow on two separate occasions over the next two weeks, perhaps well have a White Christmas this year.
