Snow on Sunday?

It seems like an eternity has passed since my previous post (in reality, it's been only 36 hours!) The many model initializations since Tuesday and this morning have all had varying solutions for the coastal low, ranging from a dry, cirrus-y day to a heavy rain and thunderstorm type of day. The latest couple of model runs have seemed to converge on a solution that looks snowy. Still many questions regarding rain/snow for Annapolis - given our very warm winter and associated warm surface temperatures that will need to be overcome. But the predictions are encouraging, and point to snow during some point of the event (right now at the end, once the surface low begins to move away and the surface layer can cool enough to support frozen precip). Here's the GFS forecast for 10 a.m. Sunday.
