An area of low pressure will approach Central Maryland tomorrow. This will increase the clouds tonight into Tuesday morning. By Tuesday afternoon, rain showers will start peppering the region.

Colder air will start to wrap in late Tuesday into Wednesday morning as the area of low pressure redevelops off the coast. Precipitation will change over to snow/sleet across areas North and West of the Baltimore metro. 

The models are not in agreement with where the coastal storm redevelops offshore, so the snow totals from the different models vary drastically. Accumulation will be likely across Northern Maryland. And right now the bullseye looks to be across Cecil and Harford counties. Roads tend to do a bit better this time of year thanks to the strong March sun angle. None the less, slick travel will still be possible. Especially on bridges, overpasses and side streets. 

Winds will also kick up again. The winds will not be as extreme as what we experienced last week but any trees that were damaged or weakened by last week's storm could be brought down. By Thursday afternoon, winds will be gusting up to 30-35 mph. 

The rest of the week will feature cool conditions. Normal high temperature for this time of year is 50 degrees. Highs will run below that for the next several days. 

Models are also hinting at another wintry system early next week. So stay tuned!
