No flakes: How close is Baltimore to a record-low snowfall?

When the meteorological winter ends next week, Baltimore’s snowfall tally is expected to remain at less than an inch – tying the region for its least snowy season on record.

A largely tranquil weather pattern and simple luck of the draw have created what meteorologists jokingly referred to as a “snow hole” over Maryland.

The Baltimore region hasn’t seen such a snow drought since 1950. This season Baltimore has seen less wintry precipitation than areas from North Carolina and Virginia to Oklahoma and northern Texas.

It has been a snowier winter in parts of the Sahara Desert.
