Harford County Public Schools announces 5 snow make up days; watch for an “ice event” expected Tuesday

My son’s principal at Fallston Middle School sent an “Alert Now” message out tonight informing us that the district has decided which days they’ll use as make up days for the five snow days they’ve used so far this year. He says the district will use three days in June it reserves as make up days: June 14, June 15 and June 16. In addition, kids will go to school on April 1 and May 20, which were both scheduled as “Teacher Staff Development Days” on the school calendar.

But I suspect we might be needing to add another make-up day. The weather forecasting collaborative Foot’s Forecast is calling for an “ice event” to start Tuesday morning here. Here’s their latest update as of 10:20 p.m. today:

Winter Stormcast | Mid-Atlantic ‎10:20 PM Sunday 1/30/2011: As we begin a new week, another dangerous winter storm will impact the Mid Atlantic region Monday night through Wednesday. The first batch of precipitation will push northward into the region late Monday into Tuesday in the form of light snow and sleet.

Light accumulations are expected for most areas. As temperatures continue to warm several thousand feet above the ground, precipitation will change to light freezing rain for much of the Mid Atlantic from northern Virginia to the Baltimore metro area. High temperatures for areas further south across Central Virginia, Southern Maryland, and the lower Eastern Shore are expected to reach the mid 30s Tuesday, allowing any freezing rain early in the day to become all rain. Depending on the extent of cold air locked at the surface, areas near the Mason Dixon line into northern Delaware may experience an extended period of freezing rain into Tuesday night, with all rain for areas to the south.

Strong southerly winds around 5,000 feet above the ground will allow temperatures at the surface to rise above freezing for nearly all areas Wednesday morning. This will enable a chilly rain to fall for much of the day, with high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s for northern areas with upper 40s to low 50s from Central Virginia to Southern Maryland to the lower Eastern Shore. Details for Pennsylvania will be added later this evening. (Forecasters Jason and Mr. Foot. Collaborators: Forecasters Winterman, Connor, Dakota)
