BALTIMORE — Winter Weather Advisories go into effect at 1 PM Sunday - 1 AM Monday for areas north and west of the Bay.
Models show the snow moving in a bit earlier, around 2 PM Sunday afternoon with snowfall rates of 1-2" per hour with more organized snow banding.
This is the time when snow will accumulate. It looks like the quick changeover from snow to freezing rain/sleet mix occurs around 9 PM along I-95.
A transition from freezing rain/sleet to cold rain will take place before midnight and precipitation overnight into early Monday will mainly fall in the form of liquid rain (moderate-heavy at times).
Higher snowfall totals are still projected to be north and west of the city. Snowfall totals decrease greatly south and east of I-95 as rain will be lingering over the southern end of the Eastern Shore for a longer duration. Winds will turn gusty Sunday evening - Monday, upwards of 45 mph at times. Some leftover flurries/sleet/light rain showers are possible around daybreak Monday which may create additional slick spots. Drier midday Monday.
More tranquil weather prevails for Tuesday with slightly below average temperatures. Trending milder for Wednesday and winds will remain on the elevated side through late week.
