We don’t know about you, Baltimore, but “Winter Wonderland” was particularly triggering this past holiday season. The region has seen a gray, dreary, mostly snow-free winter, with the first measurable snowfall not coming until just a few weeks ago. And even then, it barely registered — just 0.2 inches. This is not normal. Typically, Maryland sees an average of 20 inches of snow in a season. Until this year, Baltimore’s weakest winter in terms of snowfall was the 1949-1950 season, when just 0.7 inches fell, according to Brendon Rubin-Oster, lead forecaster at the Baltimore/Washington forecast office of the National Weather service. “We could beat that record this year,” Rubin-Oster said.
