Maryland weather: Two to three inches of snow forecast from Saturday afternoon through Sunday

0

Meteorologists predict periods of light snow late Saturday and again Sunday across Maryland, with at most a few inches of total accumulation.

The precipitation is expected to arrive by Saturday afternoon or evening and perhaps continue into Sunday afternoon, National Weather Service forecasters said.

The weather service predicted a total of 2-4 inches across most of Central Maryland, with amounts on the lower end of that range expected north and east of Baltimore, and the higher amounts to the south and west.

The storm isn’t expected to be a major one, though steadier and heavier snow is expected across West Virginia and Virginia. AccuWeather.com predicts 6 to 12 inches of snow in those areas.

Most of Virginia and parts of West Virginia were placed under a winter storm watch Friday morning.

However, if the storm does become stronger than expected, meteorologists said it could have the potential to drop as much as 5 inches across the Baltimore region.

Temperatures are expected to remain cold through the weekend. They dropped into the upper 20s around the Baltimore region early Thursday morning after a cold front moved through Wednesday, and peaked in the mid- to upper 30s Thursday afternoon.

Over the weekend, highs are forecast in the lower 30s, with lows in the 20s.

Temperatures are forecast to remain in the 20s and 30s into early next week.

There has been 1.4 inches of snow this season at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, the Baltimore region’s point of record. All of that came in November. There was not even a trace of December snow here for the first time since 2001.
