A few inches of snow tonight, tomorrow called possible Also predicted are rising temperatures

February 15, 1993|By Staff Report

A few inches of snow might accumulate in the Baltimore metropolitan area late tonight and possibly through Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said.

Fear not, say the federal prognosticators, for the precipitation should change to sleet and eventually to rain by tomorrow.

Ken Shaver, a forecaster stationed at Baltimore-Washington International Airport, said an "inch or two" might fall before rising temperatures change the snow to slush.

"There might be more of an accumulation north and west of the city, but the major part of any storm will be seen in Western Maryland where there is a winter watch in effect," Mr. Shaver said.

The snow is being carried on a low pressure system moving along the Texas-Oklahoma border today and into the Ohio Valley by tonight.
