Winter Storm Saturn: Annapolis Area Updates and Resources

The Washington, DC area is expecting some snow over the next 24-36 hours, and while accumulations won’t be significant (less than 12 inches), it’s likely to cause some disruptions. BGE is pre-positioning assets in preparation for power outages, and local emergency management agencies are setting up shelters and posting preparedness reminders. Annapolis & Anne Arundel County aren’t likely to see more than a few inches so the impact should be minimal, but it’s best to be ready nonetheless.

I’ll be posting updates on this page throughout the event.


Here are some good resources to keep an eye on:

Remember to pick up some extra batteries and provisions, check flashlights, have a battery-powered radio available, and be cautious when driving in snow.
